ENGL 471 (Jones)
Faculty: Steven Jones
This group represents a fall 2010 graduate seminar at Loyola University Chicago. Romantic poetry is itself a site of collecting, curating, and archiving the past, and today’s digital scholarship often confronts the problems associated with archiving and collecting. Our topics of discussion will thus include the origins of literary studies in the Romantic period, the aura of romantic objects in various states of reproduction, the state of literary criticism in our present moment, the role of digital humanities approaches to literary studies, and the critical and interpretive implications of collecting, archiving, digitizing works of the past. Together, we’ll construct a core list of readings at the first seminar meeting, and as a group we’ll share readings and resources here and at the course syllabus page. Each student will be responsible for a major Romantic poem or collection of poems, which she or he will critically curate over the course of the semester, conducting research, collecting texts, and sharing her or his developing knowledge at our weekly meetings. Each student's NINES exhibit will serve as the immediate expression of that activity to the group as a whole. --SJ
