World Literature 4 credits
This course considers human experience by examining diverse aesthetic and cultural perspectives in historic and contemporary world literature. Readings range across eras and genres, and will include writers from multiple geographies—in addition to America and Britain, South Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. As we define the category “world literature,” we will explore how ethnicity, nationalism, religion, gender, and economics have impacted the formation of texts around the globe. Prerequisite: Successful completion of En102 or En150 or approval of Division Chair.
