ENGH 363 - Law and Literature

4 credits
This course considers the intersection of law and literature from an historical as well as a philosophical perspective. How are legal practices and the rhetorical logic that we associate with law represented in particular works of literature? How do these practices and systems of logic teach us to separate fact from fiction? And how does the narrative and representational logic of literature inform the law? We will address these questions through a series of historically specific focal points that demonstrate the shared terrain of literary and legal discourse.
