Sep 2 - Dec 19
CR 1. Gerald N Peters    Class Number: 85946

Class Notes: THE ENLIGHTENMENT ERA AND THE EMERGENCE OF DEMOCRATIC INDIVIDUALISM This course investigates the emergence of new forms of self-determinative writing in the 18th century autobiography, the travel journal and the Bildungsroman (novel of self-development). Many of these discourses of self-determination were used by people who also influenced the social history of the period: Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Mary Wollstonecraft, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Thomas Jefferson. Their self expressions will be read in conjunction with important social discourses of self-determination these writers produced: Rousseau's Social Contract, Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Women, and Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence. We will also explore how early narratives of self-determination like The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano or Gustavus Vassa, the African open up the possibility for later emancipatory writing reflected in autobiographies like that of Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X. Ultimately, the course will explore how discourses of self-determination draw on one another and pave the way not only for the possibility of the democratic individualism we value, but also the evolution toward what our constitutional founders called a 'more perfect union' in American socio/political life.
