文学(Literature)

麻省理工学院文学系所
MIT Literature Section

在过去超过二十五年的时间中,对麻省理工学院大部分的大学生来说,文学是他们的重要经验之一:大约有四分之三的大学生研习过这门科目。

文学系所的课程设计除了配合主修、副修和专攻的学生之外,同时也能够配合那些只想要选修一两门文学课程的学生。麻省理工学院的文学课程规划提供给大学生入门、中级和高级不同程度的选择。大部分的课程都是小班制,提供学生很多机会动笔和讨论。大部分的课程都以英文撰写的文学为主,我们也提供了含有从古自今翻译文学的许多课程。

本校文学课程特殊之处在于跨领域的多样性以及对电影和其它流行文化的包容性;同时,文学系所的课程也专精于传统和历史领域,像是文艺复兴和十九世纪。大多数程度的课程都是一年提供一次;许多人文艺术社会科学推广课程(HASS-D)则是每学期开设。我们的师资都是著作等身,拥有影响力的学者和有创造力的作者,同时也以其优质和投入的教学品质闻名。

朱注:HASS-D是麻省理工学院为了让学生能够充分利用校内的人文、艺术和社会科学资源(Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences,缩写为HASS)的毕业规定。每名大学生都必须要选择八门HASS课程,而其中有三门必须是从文学与文本研究、语言思想与价值观、视觉与表演艺术、文化与社会研究、历史研究这五个HASS-D(HASS推广科目,这个D的意思应该可以称为“分散”,因为其意思是把学生对通识的选修在强制性的更为广泛,避免学生即使选修通识也还是太过集中,所以才有这样的课程强迫学生必须选修多重类别的通识课程)的类别中选出来,目的是为了要扩展学生的学习范围。由于HASS-D课程强调小班制教学,所以大部分的课程都有所谓的乱数抽选系统,以决定是哪二十五名或是十八名学生可以选修。最后,在这八门HASS课程中,又有三到四门必须要构成人文、艺术与社会科学的集中选修。详请请见:http://web.mit.edu/hass/www/guide/hassreq.html。另外,麻省理工学院也提供所谓的集中选修(Concentrate)的选择,其概念比较类似我们所谓的○○学程。学生可以在大二时提出申请,要求在某一学门中选修三到四个科目,以便学习该领域更进一步的知识。届时毕业则可以获取相关的认可,而集中选修也可以更进一步的变成副修的科目。

Literature has been a central experience for the majority of MIT's undergraduates for more than 25 years: over that time approximately 75 percent of all undergraduates have studied the subject.

Designed to serve students majoring, minoring, and concentrating in Literature as well as those students who may get to take only one or two Literature subjects while at the Institute, the Literature curriculum at MIT offers a wide range of undergraduate classes at Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced levels. Most classes are small and offer significant opportunity for student writing and speaking. Many classes focus on literature written in English, though we offer many others covering works in translation from antiquity to yesterday.

Notable for its interdisciplinary variety and for its openness to film and other forms of popular culture, the Literature program is also strong in traditional areas and historical periods such as Renaissance and the 19th Century. Most classes at all levels are offered once a year; many of the HASS-D introductory classes are offered every semester. Staffed by well-published, influential scholars and creative writers, the Literature faculty is recognized for its superior and committed teaching.
