Students read a number of American novels stemming from diffrent historical and literary periods. The emphasis is placed on in-depth textual analyses of selected novels. The focus is kept on the development of an understanding that novels are socio-politically embedded forms of writing. As discursive practices they cannot be made exempt from the social reality in which they are written and to which they relate, either implicitly or explicitly.
