- Course Description
We will examine how writers, artists, and performers have imagined nightlife—its people and places, its sounds and sights, its ethics and values, its comforts and fears. What themes and issues become most clear in the darkness of nightfall? What activities and practices flourish while most people slumber? What are the genres, settings, and characters that make up the literature of nightlife? What goes on afterhours, either in the saloons and nightclubs of the city or in the dreamscapes of our minds? In the stretch between sunset and sunrise, whole worlds come into being.
