ENG 2217 - Growing up in America

Credits: 4
The journey from childhood to adulthood has always been a prominent theme in American literature. By studying a selection of bildungsromane and memoirs, we will be able to consider the psychological and social formation of these characters in relation to American culture. We will ask such questions as: “Do these works reflect the experience of growing up in America, or create it?” and “How do these works shape us as Americans?” We will also examine how the experience of growing up in America is affected by the race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ethnicity of the protagonist—and how these differences alter his or her definition of the American dream.
