This course examines how the idea of "the modern" develops at the end of the 18th century and how being modern (or progressive, or hip) became one of the crucial criteria for understanding and evaluating cultural change during the last two hundred years. Are we still in modernity, or have we moved beyond the modern to the postmodern?

It was awesome, best decision ever to take this class. It was a hard course to take (more demanding than I expected) but totally enriching and worth the effort.

The Lectures and Readings are excellent. The essay assignments are excellent as well for honing your writing skills. I'd recommend this clas for anyone who wants to learn more about literature and philosophy.

Really good course! Michael S. ROth's lectures are of very high quality, informative, well thought through, and not boring at all. The reading materials are carefully selected and well explained for people who are new to literature, but also experienced readers found their match in the assignments' questions and comparisons.
Brilliant!

I only audited this course but have to say that the prof's lectures were top notch and the material covered was excellent and most provocative. Strong activity in the discussion threads too.
