PSY 341K • Psychology Of Literature

43245 • Beer, Jennifer
Meets TTH 11:00AM-12:30PM NOA 1.126
show description

This is a one-semester course designed to delve into the relationship between psychology and literature. The course addresses this relation in terms of character development, plot devices, and historical influences. For example, when an author creates a character, how much does the character’s psychological profile ‘ring true’ to what psychological science has learned about human nature? What makes a plot seem realistic and what makes us have to suspend disbelief and how is this related to whether the characters behave in the way psychologists would predict? Does enjoyment of a literary work require that we resonate with the characters and the choices they make? The course will pair literature with empirical and theoretical works from psychology.
