SPRING 2023 Remote

HYBRID AND EXPERIMENTAL LITERATURES | ENGL 587

Hybrid and Experimental Literatures focuses on narrative modes that foreground formal innovation and/or blur or erase distinctions between traditional genre boundaries such as prose and poetry, fiction and nonfiction, image and text, author and reader, etc. Students read creative works that possess these qualities, as well as critical writing that frames, theorizes, and interrogates the aesthetic, philosophical, and cultural conditions in which said work was produced and to which it responds. Assignments are largely creative though students are invited to produce their own theoretical models as well as their own hybrid or experimental works of art. (CASTILLO)(Credit, full course.)
