Descripció del Curs/Contents for the course:

Introduction and overview to English Literature.
Dyachronic and hypertextual analysis of authors and their works, up-date of current sociological, technological and postmodernist criticism. You should end the course with a broad overview of the literature available on the Internet. Such an overview gives you a chance to link ideas together, see historical shifts in tastes and ideology, create a frame and narrative for the wide array of literary works. As we read through British literature, We'll keep in mind how the British world changes, how the authors of these different historical periods map their own ideas of culture, nature, history, and art. How all that influenced the development of German literature.

In-class activities will be dealt with in-class.
Out_of_class activities will be dealt with virtually, that is based on the use of student e-mail and listserver set-ups.

Objetius/Aims of the Course:

To get acquainted with and know about authors, works and literary currents of English literature and to develop or improve a certain critical skill to analyse and comment on ©opyrighted/written text. which the student himself has to produce. You will also be encouraged to publish and contribute with articles to the wide existing number of electronic academic journals with which we maintain a close collaboration through our own publishing house called UVPress.


These materials, several books, including short, accessible discussions of theory, books and articles that provide model interpretations of some of these texts, as well as a few articles on the very act of reading and how we understand culture are already on-line.

You will have two formal writing assignments and several informal writing tasks. One short "engagement paper" discussing a critical theory (750-1000 words). One group project that will require each person in the group to write 2500-3000 words; this project is due on the day of thefinal exam. The final project will be defined during the academic course. This class will be very writing intensive.

Each class session we will discuss some aspect of literature, of reading strategies, and have some form of practice writing.
On days that are designated as "workshops" we will each bring a draft of the paper and work on improving it with several members of our workshop groups. A workshop only works if you ask questions of your peers and offer useful, concrete advice on how they may improve their papers. We will have several opportunities early on to practice group work if you are not familiar with this kind of classroom situation. Your work group will give two presentations during the semester. These oral presentations should discuss the critical strategy your group has developed, you won't be giving a lecture, you will be contributing to the development of a collective website where your individual contributions can be integrated.

Each assignment sheet describes how that writing task will be assessed. In brief, however, papers will be given a number score from 1 - 10; we will discuss what constitutes each number at the beginning of each assignment. At the end of the course, we will decide on a traditional grade scale to correlate with the numbers.
