CORE 003 SC - Realism and Anti-Realism


This course tackles one of the most enduring problems in the study of literature and art: the relation of fiction and painting to reality or “real life.” In the first part of the semester our focus will be on the pivotal era of realism in the novel and the visual arts in Europe, the nineteenth century. But we will then turn to the fate of realism in the twentieth century (especially in modernism’s frequent resistance to realist conventions) and finally to the status of the “real” in contemporary art and popular culture, from fiction to photography to television.

Course Credit: 1.0
