ENGL 1320W - Literature of the Americas
Fee Type


American literature considered in a global framework as writing that probes and spans the boundaries of the nation, connecting the United States to the rest of the Americas and to other parts of the globe.
By the end of the semester, students will • analyze the critical use of the term “American” in current literary studies to include its hemispheric and global meanings; • account for a range of significant literary works and recognize their place in a new American literary history understood on a global scale; • develop writing abilities in literary analysis.
