Topics in World Literatures
0.50 Credit(s)
Academic Course
Prerequisite: 10 credits, including 1.0 credit of second-year liberal studies (including 0.5 VISC credit).
This course looks at national and transnational literatures in a comparative perspective, focusing particularly on constructs of nation, gender, colonialism, and difference. Its aim is to imagine multiple literary times and spaces grounded in different parts of the world and in their different histories. That is, rather than creating a snapshot or conducting a literary tour of the world, this course seeks to refuse an easy commodification of Literature as a global product. All texts will be studied in their original English or in English translation.
Notes: ENGL 2B03 is strongly recommended in advance of 300 or 400 level ENGL courses.
