20th-Century French Narrative Prose: Realism and (Post-)TruthCourse Cancelled

Christy Nicole Wampole

Back to "Fall 2017" courses

Through theories of realism and examples of realist fiction, this course poses the following questions: What happens to realism in the post-truth era? Do we really suffer from what David Shields has called ‘reality hunger’ or some other literary affliction? What has happened to realism since the 19th century? Other topics include: naturalism, socialist and capitalist realism, the role of journalism and the social sciences in changing the texture of realism, the seepage between life and literature.
