ENG 378 (Fall 2013): Aspects of Postmodernism
01/07/2014: These video lectures supplemented my Fall 2013 course at the University of Rhode Island, ENG 378: Aspects of Postmodernism. During the semester we read six "postmodern" novels as well as chapters from Jacques Derrida's /Of Grammatology/. Because Derrida's work was a more daunting reading task than our novels, I decided to supplement our readings and discussions with these lectures in order to give students (especially those unfamiliar with continental philosophy or literary theory) a few in-roads to an otherwise overwhelming book.

The six novels we also studied were:
1). B.S. Johnson's /Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry/
2). Paula Fox's /Desperate Characters/
3). Carole Maso's /The Art Lover/
4). David Mitchell's /Cloud Atlas/
5). China Miéville's /The City & The City/
6). Sheila Heti's /How Should a Person Be?/
