The Victorian Novel - The Long Media Century: Victorian to Modern

Garrett F. Stewart

Beginning with recent studies of newsprint circulation, serial publication and ad copy, postal delivery, telegraphy, and phonography in connection with nineteenth-century narrative (Dickens, Eliot, Hardy, Conrad, James) and moving on through the birth of cinema to apparatus theory and narratology in film and digital studies, this course will examine the intersection of narrative prose, media-archaeology, and cinema in light of such intermedia and film theorists as Benjamin, Eisenstein, Bazin, McLuhan, Deleuze, Kittler, Bordwell, Debray, and Žižek.

Sample reading list:
George Eliot, The Lifted Veil
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
Thomas Hardy, A Laodicean
