Realism, 1800 to the Present

Cinema Studies 375, Comparative Literature 376, or English 375

Usual Description

Realism, though not the radical project it was, remains a significant part of contemporary culture. The tension between accurate reproduction of ‘reality’ and the creation of meaningful aesthetic form gives Realism its dynamic quality. Realism negotiates between the possibilities and limitations of representation in media such as the novel, drama, painting, photography, cinema, and television. The course will explore what realism was and its legacy, drawing from American, British, Irish, French, Italian, and Russian traditions. Diversity, 1700-1900 OR Post-1900 (not both).
