COURSE DESCRIPTION & OBJECTIVES:
In the first chapter of his monumental work The Souls of Black Folk (1903) W.E.B. Du Bois wrote:
      …the Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world, —a world which yields him no true selfconsciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness, —an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.
       The history of the American Negro is the history of this strife, —this longing to attain self-conscious manhood, to merge his double self into a better and truer self. In this merging he wishes neither of the older selves to be lost. He would not Africanize America, for America has too much to teach the world and Africa. He would not bleach his Negro soul in a flood of white Americanism, for he knows that Negro blood has a message for the world. He simply wishes to make it possible for a man to be both a Negro and an American, without being cursed and spit upon by his fellows, without having the doors of Opportunity closed roughly in his face. This, then, is the end of his striving: to be a co-worker in the kingdom of culture, to escape both death and isolation, to husband and use his best powers and his latent genius.

This course is a study of African American literature and culture through the 19th and 20th centuries and up to today, however, if it succeeds, it will go far deeper than this, becoming an insightful investigation of the “double consciousness” that Du Bois alluded to 115 years ago. Themes for this course will include the Construction of Race, Slavery, Emancipation, Jim Crow, Lynching, Jazz, Urbanization, the Harlem Renaissance, Desegregation, Civil Rights, R&B & Rock n’ Roll, the Sports and Entertainment Industries, Victimization, White-guilt, Political Correctness, Affirmative Action, and Hip-Hop Culture.
Because of its combined literary and cultural foci, the methodology of this course will be somewhat unconventional, using not only literary texts and documents, but also many cultural creations (film, music, etc.)  to examine the story of Black America. This is necessary because this subject is complex and culturally loaded—the construction, enforcement, reconstruction, and slow transformation of “Black” and “White” America is at the center of the dynamic tension that has driven much of American history, from the ravages of Slavery and the Civil War to the creation of the amazing and distinctive African American culture that heavily impacts the global
culture of the 21st century. Each week will include a lecture on the context & culture of Black America for the given era, and then a discussion of the assigned texts. Learning to examine, explain, and understand the vibrant literary and cultural creations of Black America is the goal of this course.
EVALUATION:
Reading Responses: Each week during this seven-week class there will be both required and supplemental texts—I will provide access to all materials. Students are responsible for four Response Essays (500 to 1,000 words) based on the texts and the material from lectures. I will expect these essays to be an insightful analysis of our texts, written in clean, crisp, concise prose. Your grade will be based on your top three responses.
Class Participation: You will all be expected to attend each lecture, to thoroughly read each required text, and to actively participate in class discussions. For the first few weeks of class, this will be done in a “cyber” format because I’ll still be in the U.S.A. From that point forward, we will meet regularly at the university.

Američka kratka priča

Naziv kolegija: Američka kratka priča
Nastavnik: dr.sc. Sven Cvek, doc.
ECTS: 6
Jezik: engleski
Trajanje: 4. ili 6. semestar
Status: izborni kolegij
Oblici nastave: 1 sat predavanja, 2 sata seminara tjedno
Uvjet za upis kolegija: Uvod u studij engleske književnosti 1 i 2

Opis kolegija:
Polazeći od uobičajene opaske o kratkoj priči kao “nacionalnoj umjetničkoj formi” SAD-a, kolegij nudi povijesni i problemski pregled njezine prisutnosti u američkoj kulturi. U kolegiju ćemo se osvrnuti na formalne, institucionalne i političkoekonomske aspekte proizvodnje, distribucije i recepcije kratke priče. Posebno će nas zanimati: pretpostavka o nacionalnoj pripadnosti kratke priče; problem kratke priče kao kulturne forme ili žanra; materijalni uvjeti koji omogućuju njezin kontinuitet i mijene. Kratkoj priči se dakle pristupa u okviru širih društvenih odnosa, s posebnim naglaskom na dinamiku između povijesnih promjena i promjena kulturnih formi. S obzirom da kratka priča pokriva čitav povijesni razvoj SAD-a, u kolegiju će se birati i izmijenjivati konkretniji fokusi, bilo vremenski (u rasponu od otprilike 1800. do danas), bilo tematski (pitanja žanra; pitanje literarne infrastrukture, poput časopisa ili radionica kreativnog pisanja; pitanje kratke priče kao
kulturnopovijesnoga dokumenta; pitanje transformacija i mogućnosti kratkih formi danas; itd.).

Cilj kolegija:
Cilj je kolegija upoznati studente s književnim korpusom američke kratke priče, teorijskim tekstovima o ovom žanru, kao i uputiti ih u kritičko promišljanje nastanka, razvoja i transformacija kulturnih formi u kontekstu širih društvenih procesa.

Studentske obaveze:
redoviti dolasci i čitanje literature; kontinuirana provjera znanja u obliku pismenih zadaća; seminarski rad.

Literatura:
Izbor američkih kratkih priča.

Američko pjesništvo dvadesetog stoljeća

Naziv kolegija: Američko pjesništvo dvadesetog stoljeća
Nastavnik: prof.dr. Stipe Grgas
ECTS: 6
Jezik: engleski
Trajanje: 4. ili 6. semestar
Status: izborni kolegij
Oblici nastave: 1 sat predavanja, 2 sata seminara tjedno
Uvjet za upis kolegija: „Uvod u studij engleske književnosti“ I i II

Okvirni sadržaj predmeta: Kolegij nudi prikaz, čitanje i interpretaciju američke poezije publicirane od kraja devetnaestog stoljeća pa do današnjih dana. Polazi se od prosudbe da se na filološkim studijima tijekom zadnjih desetljeća marginaliziralo pjesničko stvaralaštvo i, uzimajući to kao polazište. nastojat će se pokazati relevantnost tog arhiva. Težište će biti na specifičnosti pjesničkog izričaja, na mijenama uloge poezije u sustavu književnosti ali i u širem kulturnom okruženju. Dijakronijskim čitanjem američkih pjesnika istražit će se njihova razlikovna obilježja ali i osobine koje oni/one dijele s pjesmotvorstvom u inim književnim i kulturnim sredinama. Osnovno metodološko polazište kolegije jest da se pjesništvo razvija prema njemu imanentnim zakonitostima ali isto tako da zrcali izazove izvanknjiževne stvarnosti. Zbog nepreglednosti građe kolegij će izvršiti selekciju u književnoj produkciji i izdvojiti reprezentativne ne samo pjesnike nego i reprezentativne tekstove odabranih pjesnika. Kolegij će maksimalno iskoristiti dostupnost na internetu ne samo tekstova nego i snimljenih čitanja pjesama.

Cilj: Studenti će se upoznati s vrlo važnim segmentom pjesničke produkcije dvadesetog stoljeća. Cilj je probuditi kod polaznika svijest o zapostavljenom književnom žanru, izvježbati ih kako mu pristupiti i uvjeriti ih u mnogostruku funkciju i važnost pjesničke riječi.

Studentske obveze: Izvršenje obveza kontinuirane provjere znanja. Tijekom semestra polaznici moraju napisati nekoliko kratkih osvrta o zadanim tekstovima dok su na predzadnjoj sesiji dužni predati duži seminarski rad. Tijekom zadnje sesije piše se pismeni ispit.

Oblik nastave: tri sata tjedno (1P+2S)
Uvjeti za upis: Položen Uvod u studij engleske književnosti 1 i 2
Semestar: 4. ili 6. semestar

Sadržaj: Kolegij predstavlja pregled engleskog romana u 19. stoljeću; u tom razdoblju dolazi do velikog uzleta romana vezanog uz brzo rastuće književno tržište namijenjeno srednjoj klasi. Tijekom tog razdoblja roman je osobito obilježen nakanom romanopisaca da sudjeluju u oblikovanju društvenih rasprava o važnim pitanjima britanskog društva u kontekstu brzih mijena. Izbor romana u ovom kolegiju nastoji oslikati neke od središnjih društvenih tema u romanima 19. stoljeća, poput tema vezanih uz brak, klasne ideologije, industrijalizaciju, Britansko carstvo, te pisanje kao profesiju.

Ciljevi kolegija: U sadržajnom smislu, cilj kolegija je upoznati studente s nekima od romana iz jednog od najproduktivnijih razdoblja u povijesti engleskog romana. Kolegij pri tome nastoji potaknuti aktivan odnos studenta prema književnom tekstu u cilju razvijanja vještina interpretacije književnog teksta.

Zadaće u kolegiju: Ocjena u kolegiju zasnovana je na kratkom eseju u drugom dijelu semestra (oko pet stranica), prvom kolokviju sredinom semestra, te drugom kolokviju pred kraj semestra.

Antropocen u britanskoj i australskoj književosti i filmu

Naziv kolegija: Antropocen u britanskoj i australskoj književnosti i filmu
Nastavnica: dr. sc. Iva Polak, izv. prof.
ECTS-bodovi: 6
Jezik: engleski
Trajanje: 4. ili 6. semestar
Status: izborni kolegij
Oblici nastave: 1 sat predavanja, 2 sata seminara tjedno
Uvjeti za upis kolegija: Uvod u studij engleske književnosti 1 i 2
Okvirni sadržaj predmeta: Kolegij ima za cilj istražiti kulturološke implikacije antropocena, tj. razdoblja u kojem ljudski rod postaje geološka sila koja utječe na biosferu, na književno-filmskom korpusu Ujedinjenog Kraljevstva i Australije. Polazeći od premise Timothyja Mortona da je čovjek istodobno „detektiv i kriminalac“ antropocena (Dark Ecology, 2017.), kolegij će se temeljiti na diskusiji romana, žanrovski uklopivih u znanstvenu fantastiku u širem smislu, koji doprinose tekućoj raspravi o prekomjernom izgaranju fosilnih goriva, globalnom zatopljenju, smanjenju biološke raznolikosti, globalnom rastu stanovništva, nastanku takozvanih klimatskih izbjeglica, ukratko o čovjekovu utjecaju na ekosustav. Romani na satiričan način progovaraju iz drugačijih kulturnih, etničkih i rodnih pozicija te stoga pružaju drugačiji “recept” za izbjegavanje/preživljavanje kraja svijeta. Kolegij će također biti popraćen odgovarajućim filmskim i dokumentarnim ostvarenjima.
Cilj: Studenti će se upoznati s problematikom novog „geološkog razdoblja“ i kako je ono utjecalo na proizvodnju i tumačenje kulturnog proizvoda Ujedinjenog Kraljevstva i Australije.
Studentske obveze: ispunjavanje elemenata kontinuirane provjere znanja, koji obuhvaćaju redovito pohađanje nastave (do 4 izostanka), provjeru čitanja odabranih književnih djela i gledanja odabranih filmova, kraće pisane zadatke u okviru nastave, pravovremenu predaju seminarskog rada i obvezno polaganje 2 kolokvija. Seminarski rad nosi 35%, dva kolokvija 50% i ostali elementi kontinuirane provjere znanja 15% zaključne ocjene iz kolegija. Za prolaz na kolegiju nužno je zadovoljiti sve elemente kontinuirane provjere znanja.
Točni termin 1. kolokvija utvrđuje se u dogovoru sa studentima. Raspodjela tema za seminarske radove je u 8. tjednu nastave.

Jezik: engleski
Oblik nastave: 1P+2S
Uvjeti za upis: Položen Uvod u studij engleske književnosti 1 i 2
Trajanje: 4. ili 6. semestar

Opis kolegija: Na tragu studije Jürgena Osterhammela o preobrazbi svijeta u 19. stoljeću, u kolegiju ćemo razmotriti kako viktorijanska književnost sudjeluje u toj transformaciji, te kako svijet kakav povezujemo s modernosti 20. i 21. stoljeća (s krizama u rasponu od svjetskih ratova do klimatskih promjena) nalazi svoju definiciju već u viktorijanskoj književnosti. Usredotočit ćemo se na izabrane tekstove Alfreda Tennysona, Roberta Browninga, Elizabeth Gaskell, Charlesa Dickensa, Matthewa Arnolda, Johna Ruskina i Arthura Conana Doylea.

Način polaganja ispita: Konačnu ocjenu sačinjava uspjeh iz dviju pismenih provjera znanja (jedne sredinom i druge krajem semestra, 30% + 30% konačne ocjene), te iz eseja na zadanu temu (30% konačne ocjene), uz redovito pohađanje nastave i aktivno sudjelovanje u njoj (10% konačne ocjene).

Način praćenja kvalitete i uspješnosti izvedbe predmeta: Anonimna studentska anketa na kraju semestra.

Britanski romantizam: poezija

Naziv predmeta: Engleska književnost romantizma
Naziv kolegija: Britanski romantizam: poezija
(raniji naziv kolegija: Poezija engleskog romantizma)
Nastavnik: doc. dr. sc. Martina Domines Veliki
ECTS bodovi: 6

Jezik: engleski
Trajanje: 3. ili 5, 4. ili 6. semestar
Status: izborni
Oblik nastave: 1 sat predavanja i 2 sat seminara tjedno
Uvjeti: upisan 3. ili 5.; 4. ili 6. semestar
Ispit: kontinuirano praćenje (prvi kolokvij sredinom semestra i drugi kolokvij u posljednjem tjednu nastave (u konačnu ocjenu ulazi i seminarski rad, pohađanje nastave, te aktivnost na satu).

Cilj: Cilj je kolegija upoznati studente s najznačajnijim pjesnicima engleskog romantizma te povijesnim, kulturnim, političkim i estetskim okružjem u kojem su stvarali i na koje su snažno utjecali. Studenti će imati priliku promišljati i analizirati odabrane pjesme, te će u dijalogu s nastavnikom stvoriti osobno viđenje pjesnika te ideoloških i estetkih implikacija njihove poezije s kraja 18. i prvih desetljeća 19. stoljeća. U tom će im pomoći niz kritičkih tekstova, od (novo)historističkih pa sve do post-strukturalističkih pristupa romantizmu.

Sadržaj: Kolegij će se kroz stvaralaštvo Blakea, Wordswortha, Coleridgea, Byrona, Shelleya i Keatsa baviti nekim temeljnim romantičarskim konceptima kao što su pjesničko nadahnuće, sjećanje na prošlost, sublimnost, deizam i misticizam, odnos subjekta i prirode te subjekta i jezika. Pobuna protiv društvenih nepravdi, osjećaj za «malog» čovjeka, želja za stapanjem s prirodom, osjećaj usamljenosti i odbačenosti samo su neke od osnovnih osobina romantičarskog pjesnika koji sâm postaje središnjom temom svojih pjesama. Tematska okosnica cijelog kolegija je društveni angažman pojedinih pjesnika u njihovom nastojanju da budu priznati ‘zakonodavci svijeta’ (Shelley).

Sadržaj kolegija po tjednima:

1. tjedan: Uvod u razdoblje engleskog romantizma. Povijesni kontekst romantizma.
2. tjedan: William Blake – selections from Songs of Innocence and Experience

Status:
elective

Enrollment requirements:
enrollment in the 3rd and 5th or 4th and 6th semester
Course description:
The course explores a number of novels which have been published since 9/11.

The course attempts to describe the form of the novel in contemporary US writing, the manner in which it reflects the present moment in US history and the way it engages the challenges of present reality.

Objectives: The purpose of the course is to develop the student’s ability to approach literary texts and to broaden their perspectives on the complexity of US reality.
Course requirements: continual attendance, oral presentation, written assignment, written final exam

Week by week schedule: the event, the present, 9/11 and its representations, American myths and their literary representations, the new regionalism, the city and capital, the sense of the ending

ECTS credits: 6
Language of instruction: English
Semester: Summer 2017

Enrollment requirements: Introduction to the Study of English Literature; enrollment in the 2nd or 3rd year.
______________________________________________________________________________________

Course description: This course will analyze American literature of the late 20th and early 21st century that engages with the idea of cross-cultural contact and exchange. Cultures can meet in productive and destructive ways, but rarely is the division so clear; meetings across cultures are always complex. As a class, we will read literature that reflects on these meetings critically, discussing how authors around the turn of this millennium are reexamining paradigms for cultural connection and conflict that are as old as America itself. The instructor will lecture on and share samples of literature from earlier centuries to review in class, but the readings will be concentrated in contemporary literature. We will spend the first part of the class exploring the questions of how culture will be/should be/could be defined for this course: we will have to think about how culture relates to race, ethnicity, class, and religion, how it is shaped by nation and immigration, and how it is often defined by hybridity instead of purity or authenticity. The concepts that will frame our study of cross-racial relationships in American contexts are listed in the week-by-week schedule below: as we move forward, we will be treating each new text with attention to the current and previous framing concepts. In addition, my hope is that we will complete the course with an ability to apply these concepts to current “culture wars” in American, transnational, and perhaps even personal contexts.

Course requirements: Regular attendance; participation in class discussions; in-class and home assignments; continuous evaluation (a mid-term and final, mandatory for all students); seminar paper (5-7 double-spaced pages in 8th edition MLA style). It is essential to observe the deadlines set down for your readings and for particular assignments; if not, this can adversely affect your grade. Grade breakdown: tests (midterm and final)—30%; journal responses—20%; seminar paper—40%; class participation—10%.

Du Bois wrote: …the Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world,—a world which yields him no true self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness,—an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.

   The history of the American Negro is the history of this strife,—this longing to attain self-conscious manhood, to merge his double self into a better and truer self. In this merging he wishes neither of the older selves to be lost. He would not Africanize America, for America has too much to teach the world and Africa. He would not bleach his Negro soul in a flood of white Americanism, for he knows that Negro blood has a message for the world. He simply wishes to make it possible for a man to be both a Negro and an American, without being cursed and spit upon by his fellows, without having the doors of Opportunity closed roughly in his face. This, then, is the end of his striving: to be a co-worker in the kingdom of culture, to escape both death and isolation, to husband and use his best powers and his latent genius.

This course is a study of African American literature and culture through the 19th and 20th centuries and up to today, however, if it succeeds, it will go far deeper than this, becoming an insightful investigation of the “double consciousness” that Du Bois alluded to over 110 years ago.  Themes for this course will include the Construction of Race, Slavery, Emancipation, Jim Crow, Lynching, Jazz, Urbanization, the Harlem Renaissance, Desegregation, Civil Rights, R&B & Rock n’ Roll, the Sports and Entertainment Industries, Victimization, White-guilt, Political Correctness, Affirmative Action, and Hip-Hop Culture.

Because of its combined literary and cultural foci, the methodology of this course will be somewhat unconventional, using not only literary texts and documents, but also many cultural creations (film, music, etc.) to examine the story of Black America. This is necessary because this subject is complex and culturally loaded—the construction, enforcement, reconstruction, and slow transformation of “Black” and “White” America is at the center of the dynamic tension that has driven much of American history, from the ravages of Slavery and the Civil War to the creation of the amazing and distinctive African American culture that heavily impacts the global culture of the 21st century. Each week will include a lecture on the context & culture of Black America for the given era, and then a discussion of the assigned text. Learning to examine, explain, and understand the vibrant literary and cultural creations of Black America is the goal of this course.  

 EVALUATION:  Reading Responses: During this class you will be responsible for seven Reading Responses — one for each of the 7 weeks we meet. These should be at least 1000 words and I will expect an insightful analysis of the work written in clean, crisp, concise prose. I will drop the lowest scoring response.  Class Participation: You will all be expected to attend each lecture, to read each assigned text well, and to actively participate in class discussions.
