This course takes up current thinking on the force, agency, and "vibrancy" of matter in the literary imagination, through the juxtaposition of a set of readings that engage with objects, animals, climate, and geological phenomena. It offers a practical testing ground for explication and analysis, as well as a review of key theoretical statements and a perspective on new materialism's relevance to the tradition of ideology critique or the "cultural imaginary." Readings will move from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, including Daniel Defoe, Jonathan Swift, Anna Sewell, Emily Brontë, Paul Auster, Amitav Ghosh, and Jane Bennett.
When Offered Spring.
