ENG 250(C) - The World in Literature
MassTransfer Block Code: Humanities/Fine and Performing Arts
This course explores works from Asia, Africa, Oceania, the Americas, and Europe, with emphasis on literature of the global South, or non-Euro American literature. Issues of colonialism and post-colonialism will be discussed whenever working with texts from decolonizing nations, exploring how world authors have “written back” to Western empires and literary traditions. Students will also examine how issues of gender, sexuality, class, and other hierarchies are important in many literary traditions, including those that have been historically left out of the Western literary canon. Students may also read works by diasporic authors who have relocated to Western nations from formerly colonized ones, and works by indigenous authors.
