This course will demystify literary studies by teaching students “the way we argue now.” This phrase suggests that 1) that there is a “we”—a community of people who make, revise, and learn from arguments about literature; 2) that there are different “ways” to argue; and 3) that how we argue about literature (and how we understand literature!) changes over time—“now” differs from “then.”
