ENGL 378 - Law, Literature, and Difference

3 credits
This course explores how conceptions of the law work in concert with custom to attempt to encode definitions of identity into U.S. society. We will attempt to understand how conceptual categories like “citizen” and “the Human” are crafted through court decisions, written laws, and material enforcement. Students can expect to read widely and deeply across disciplines including law, history, and literary theory in order to grapple with the problems and implications of the legal history of forms of difference.
