ENGL 362P: Love in the 19th Century

1 unit
Prerequisites:  Completion with a 2.0 or better of at least three units in English, including one unit numbered ENGL 220 to ENGL 289; or permission of instructor.
Love is many things–it is an idea, a feeling, an action, a religious imperative, and a political and literary tool.  This class uses love to examine the various ways that American writers both challenge and reinforce racial and gender hierarchies.  Texts will include novels and poetry by white and BIPOC authors who wrote in (or in a few cases wrote about) nineteenth-century America.   Roberts
