|Details: A study of American business and work as they are expressed in literature: ambition, accumulation, worth, wealth, labor, status, the laborer (including the exploration of gender and race as aspects that contribute to how the worker is identified), the marketplace, economic restructuring, the victory of capitalism, the emergence of the corporation, and the processes of globalization. The course interrogates some of the foundational ideas (and ideals) in narratives of success and wealth by looking at how these narratives register social conflict and by thinking about how the ?others? of the business world become integrated within it. The course will also provide students with an introduction to the major literary genres. This course may not be taken for credit if 105, 106, or 107 is taken. (F, Sp).
