課程概述

Course Description:
The development of natural history began to gather pace drastically in the nineteenth century, with impetus from industrialization and imperial expansion, political reforms, etc. It not only provided background to intellectual endeavours but actively participated in the inflections of aesthetic production, including literature and arts. 

課程目標
Course Objectives:
Students will be enabled to understand the ways in which the forms and contents of literature evolve from the conjoined efforts to investigate the physical world. This course is designed to familiarize graduate students with the interconnected development of natural history and literature of the 19th century Britain. Three areas of natural history are covered: thing theory/collecting, geology, and botany. Related literary works will be chosen to accompany discussion of texts written in these four areas to gain a better picture of the crucial period in British literature and intellectual history. 
課程要求
Requirements:
Students are to read the assigned materials beforehand. Weekly reading notes are to be sent to the instructor before the class session. Each student is to lead 2 discussions in the form of presentation (50 min) with Power Point slides, and to produce a term paper around 18-20 pages in MLA style (8th edition).
