What you'll learn in this literature class:

Rudyard Kipling’s name is associated today with Disney’s version of The Jungle Book and with Imperialism.

In this course we will see how the first is exclusionary (Kipling was above all a great craftsman of complex tales and poems) and how the second is largely false. We will study six short stories that will show the vast range of Kipling’s abilities as one of the great storytellers of all time.

Anthropology and Ethnographic Theory

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Brooklyn 68 Jay St, Brooklyn, New York 11201

Developed as a tool for colonial empire-building at the close of the 19th century, the ethnographic method has become an important practice for telling the stories of the oppressed, designing for the future, and demanding social change.

Kant’s Critical Aesthetics

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Financial District 75 Broad St, New York, New York 10004

Art was anything but peripheral to Kant’s philosophical project. In judging a thing to be beautiful, Kant maintained, we bridge “the great gulf” of nature and human freedom, and prepare ourselves to “love something, even nature, without interest”—that is, exercise moral judgment. Immensely influential in its time, the so-called “third...

William Faulkner: Absalom, Absalom!

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Sunnyside 47-29 32nd Pl, Long Island City, New York 11101

For the historian C. Vann Woodward, living in the South at the height of Jim Crow, it was literature that awoke him to the myths and dissimulation of official white supremacy. In particular, William Faulkner’s novels—his 1936 classic Absalom, Absalom! especially—challenged the tendency of Southern historians to justify and validate...

Cold Pastoral: Literature, Nature, and the Anthropocene

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Brooklyn 68 Jay St, Brooklyn, New York 11201

What do ideas of nature have to tell us about literature and how it works? Through the medium of the pastoral—variously defined as a genre, a set of rhetorical moves, or an uneasy collection of tropes—writers have evoked, described, and accounted for nature and humanity’s place within it. From visions of Arcadia to Paradise to the Golden Age,...

E. Said’s Orientalism: Literature and the Non-European

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Brooklyn 68 Jay St, Brooklyn, New York 11201

What is “Orientalism”? And why has the book that defined it as a Western body of knowledge remained so popular as a key text of critical theory? Published in 1978, Edward Said’s Orientalism immediately attracted both praise and censure. For Said, the notion that the world is divided—politically, culturally, and morally—into the...
