Jon Thompson Courses


Since joining the faculty at North Carolina State University, I have taught courses in twentieth century English and American literature, and courses on contemporary literature. In practice, this means courses in modernism, postmodernism, early and late twentieth-century poetry, as well as more specialized courses in twentieth-century American prose (fiction and nonfiction), and twentieth-century British/Irish prose (fiction and non-fiction). I also regularly teach courses in literary/cultural theory, at both the graduate and undergraduate level.

Listed below are the courses that I most regularly teach:
