ENCR 3400 - Theories of Reading

This course has two parts. The first half offers a survey of influential styles of critical reading, including psychoanalysis, structuralism, deconstruction, and several styles of political interpretation. The second half invites students to think theoretically yet sympathetically about affective dimensions of reader response such as identification, empathy, enchantment, and shock.
