What you'll learn
- In this course you will first learn the general Information about postmodernism and then gain in-depth knowledge of postmodern literature and theory.
- There are no specific scholastic requirements, but this course will appeal to all those who are interested in learning new things.
This is an ever-growing course and I will keep on adding materials to it regularly!
Postmodernism is a highly misunderstood and often maligned concept in American popular culture and politics.
Using video lectures and other textual resources, this course will introduce you to the following aspects of postmodernism:
A general understanding of Postmodernism and postmodern literary theory
Introduction to major concepts, theories, and debates about the postmodern condition and the postmodern literature in English.
Introduction to some important postmodern literary texts.
After you have finished the course you will understand Postmodernism as a movement broadly, and you will have a deeper grasp of postmodern literature and postmodern literary theory. Thus, after you finish the course, you will be able to understand and explain postmodernism and postmodern literature with the confidence of an expert.
Please also note that at the bottom of the course syllabus page, I have added additional materials that link to my YouTube channel. These materials are not required for the course but you are likely to expand your knowledge if you spend some time watching these additional video resources.
Besides the video lectures, the course includes textual resources, links to longer and more detailed videos, and links to the resources on my website. I am also open to any suggestions that you might have and would incorporate them as and when I revise this course. So, please feel free to reach out to me through the course messaging system with your questions, queries, and suggestions.
