Introduction to Scholarship in Modern Languages and Literatures

Introduction to Scholarship in Modern Languages and Literatures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In lively, informative discussions fifteen distinguished scholars of language and literature address graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Each essay examines the significance, underlying assumptions, and limits of an important field in linguistics or literary studies; traces the historical development of its subject; introduces key terms; outlines modes of inquiry now being pursued; and predicts likely future developments.

Introduction to Scholarship makes an excellent text in courses designed to acquaint upper-level students with the forms and practice of research and criticism in language and literature study. Frequent examples make the material readily accessible. Students will find the suggestions for further reading especially helpful.
