EN 330 - The Long Eighteenth Century

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: EN 101 , one EN 200-level core course, and HS 101 . The long eighteenth century (1688-1832) was on its well-polished surface a period of aristocratic dominance and Augustan calm. Yet beneath the surface seethed enormous forces of change-in government and empire, in the arts and letters, and in industry and society. This interdisciplinary course jointly taught by faculty in the Departments of English and History challenges students to read eighteenth-century literature from John Dryden to Jane Austin in the context of eighteenth-century history-and vice versa.
