Course Description

In order to engage with the truly contemporary, we must wade into more ephemeral pools of present-day writing. This course will be an examination of the state of American literature in the year 2018 through the lens of contemporary journals. We will move from apparently mainstream journals like The Paris Review and Tin House, to self-consciously irreverent attempts to reshape the magazine form such as McSweeney's and DIAGRAM, to journals that seek to gather and elevate specific communities like n+1 and BLOOM. Along the way, we will examine how these journals act as the gatekeepers, taste-makers, and meeting-points of modern literary culture. This will be a rigorously multi-genre class, exploring the newest fiction, essays, poetry, criticism, and journalism, all in an effort to more deeply understand the trends and tastes that are developing right now.

Ethan J. Madore is guest lecturer from the University of Iowa. Particularly recommended for the Angewandte Studiengänge.
