CLA 514

Info tab content
Twelve modes of reading' combines, each week, a discussion of relevant theory and a practical application to a text read in the original Greek or Latin. Reading knowledge of these languages is a pre-requisite: it need not be very advanced and will improve through taking this course. Sessions include distinguished visitors associated with specific modes of reading and divide into three thematic groups: Reading through writing: philology, commentary, translation, digitization. Reading suspiciously: Freudian, Marxist, postcolonial feminist readings. Reading through (other) reading: reception, authorship, autobiography, reparation.
