Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

If you feel you could do with an introduction to or a brush-up on literary key texts, topics, cultural innovations and discursive shifts from Austen to Wilde, from gothic to decadent, from minuet to waltz, from the Lady of Shallot to Emmeline Pankhurst, from medievalism to Japonaiserie, from Mesmerism to Darwinism, from the Ancient Mariner to Dracula, from the Corn Laws to the Lambouchère Amendment Act, from the sublime to sexology, from the abolition of slavery to the women's vote, from Jeremy Bentham to John Stuart Mill, this course might be worth joining. This lecture will neither proceed strictly chronologically from decade to decade, nor will it merely tackle one literary genre or canonised author after the other. Instead, the aim is to put literary, scientific and popular manifestations of cultural fascinations, conflicts, fantasies, and anxieties centre stage. In each lesson, there will be an opportunity for Q&As and for hands-on analysis of a scrap of 19th century literature or culture.

Literatur

For this lecture you do not need to purchase any books. The prep reading materials will either be made available to you on Moodle or can be accessed at http://www.gutenberg.org. Yet if you are wondering which literary history to buy, here is a good one, albeit written in German: Ina Schabert, Englische Literaturgeschichte aus der Sicht der Geschlechterforschung. Stuttgart: Kröner, 1997 [ISBN: 3-520-38701-8]. For your general background information, I recommend http://www.victorianweb.org, The more hours you spend browsing this website, the more satisfyingly the lecture will click into already existing knowledge. For specific biographical information about famous, dead Brits try the The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
