History of 20th Century American Literature
We are pleased to welcome back literary scholar Mark Scarbrough as he leads a five week session exploring the History of 20th Century American Literature in 5 Short Stories. Join us as we discuss some of the dominant literary trends that have shaped last century’s literature in the United States like the rise and failure of modernism, the emergence of once-forgotten voices, and the baffling notion of post-modernism. In this lecture/discussions series Mark will lead participants through five stories from the twentieth century, ranging from Willa Cather to Lorrie Moore, Zora Neale Hurston to William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor. Time will be spent with multi-media presentations of music, painting, and dance, based on these five representative selections.
Register now to reserve your booklet—and a spot in what promises to be a lively, fun and comprehensive class.
Participants that would like to purchase a booklet of the short stories in one packet, there will be a material fee of $10.
