ENG 2202 - Prizes, Prestige, and Profits

Credits: 4
Prizes, Prestige, and Profits will examine literary prize culture.  Why are there prizes in artistic fields?  Whose interests are served by these prizes?  It is often not the bestselling book or the biggest blockbuster movie which wins artistic awards, so what kinds of works win these prizes and what are the criteria used?  With international literary prizes, how are the merits of works from different cultures and with different aesthetics judged?  This class will consider these questions and read some works by winners and finalists for international literary prizes.
Prerequisites Placement into ENG-1101
