ENGL 080 - (LT) Constructing Global Anglophone LiteratureSemester Hours: 3
This course introduces students to selected literature in English from the 19th through the 21st century, originating primarily from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Canada, and Australia, paying close attention to the ways in which these writings converse and argue with one another as well as with texts from the traditional literary canon. We will explore the ways in which genre, theme, and form shape and distinguish these texts, and reflect on the ways in which new reading practices are shaping the construction of a global literary history. Readings might include Soyinka, N’gugi, Walcott, Achebe, Roy, Mistry, Garimara, Emecheta, Rushdie, Kincaid, and Ondaatje.
