文學(Literature)

麻省理工學院文學系所
MIT Literature Section

在過去超過二十五年的時間中,對麻省理工學院大部分的大學生來說,文學是他們的重要經驗之一:大約有四分之三的大學生研習過這門科目。

文學系所的課程設計除了配合主修、副修和專攻的學生之外,同時也能夠配合那些只想要選修一兩門文學課程的學生。麻省理工學院的文學課程規劃提供給大學生入門、中級和高階不同程度的選擇。大部分的課程都是小班制,提供學生很多機會動筆和討論。大部分的課程都以英文撰寫的文學為主,我們也提供了含有從古自今翻譯文學的許多課程。

本校文學課程特殊之處在於跨領域的多樣性以及對電影和其它流行文化的包容性;同時,文學系所的課程也專精於傳統和歷史領域,像是文藝復興和十九世紀。大多數程度的課程都是一年提供一次;許多人文藝術社會科學推廣課程(HASS-D)則是每學期開設。我們的師資都是著作等身,擁有影響力的學者和有創造力的作者,同時也以其優質和投入的教學品質聞名。

朱註:HASS-D是麻省理工學院為了讓學生能夠充分利用校內的人文、藝術和社會科學資源(Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences,縮寫為HASS)的畢業規定。每名大學生都必須要選擇八門HASS課程,而其中有三門必須是從文學與文本研究、語言思想與價值觀、視覺與表演藝術、文化與社會研究、歷史研究這五個HASS-D(HASS推廣科目,這個D的意思應該可以稱為「分散」,因為其意思是把學生對通識的選修在強制性的更為廣泛,避免學生即使選修通識也還是太過集中,所以才有這樣的課程強迫學生必須選修多重類別的通識課程)的類別中選出來,目的是為了要擴展學生的學習範圍。由於HASS-D課程強調小班制教學,所以大部分的課程都有所謂的亂數抽選系統,以決定是哪二十五名或是十八名學生可以選修。最後,在這八門HASS課程中,又有三到四門必須要構成人文、藝術與社會科學的集中選修。詳請請見:http://web.mit.edu/hass/www/guide/hassreq.html。另外,麻省理工學院也提供所謂的集中選修(Concentrate)的選擇,其概念比較類似我們所謂的○○學程。學生可以在大二時提出申請,要求在某一學門中選修三到四個科目,以便學習該領域更進一步的知識。屆時畢業則可以獲取相關的認可,而集中選修也可以更進一步的變成副修的科目。

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.
