212 Contemporary American Literature: Stephen King

Class Dates: 12/23/2019 - 1/17/2020
Class Times: MTWThF, 9:00am - 12:15pm
Instructor: Yemini
Location: Hill Hall - Room 217
Format: On Campus
Credits: 3
COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course seeks to examine the complex dynamics of narrative by focusing on the literary contributions of the well-renowned author Stephen King.  Students will study King’s work through the lenses of three genres: drama, horror, and science fiction. Thirteen of King’s stories serve as the infrastructural basis for study; film adaptations provide supplementary opportunities for exploration. Students will also engage with King’s memoir, On Writing, to place texts and films in context.  Emphasis is placed on the development of close-reading strategies and critical analysis, as well as the composition of nuanced, convincing, and precise arguments based in textual evidence. In particular, students will practice placing texts in conversation with one another. Ultimately, as students familiarize themselves with a broad array of King’s work—and as they explore the narrative strategies within each text—they will simultaneously identify the artistic and sociocultural components of storytelling.
