Advanced Common Curriculum: Writing About Literature
This course uses critical reading as a foundation for developing critical thinking and writing skills. The course explores how Americans of different times and places have considered work in the sense of remunerative employment. In modern literature city settings have often been the scene of critiques of the modes of labor (types of jobs) and the focus of how people have felt about them in industrial capitalist societies.
