Literature and Society: Postwar New York

ENG 574/AAS 574

Info tab content
The seminar focuses on the literature, art, and culture of New York in the 1960s. Six writers guide our inquiry: Hannah Arendt, James Baldwin, Amiri Baraka, Jane Jacobs, Frank O'Hara, and Susan Sontag, but we read widely and engage a range of media and scholarship. We also pay special attention to the little magazines of the period, especially the magazines associated with the mimeograph revolution.
