Representations of empire and culture in modern Anglophone literature and cinema from around the world; cross-cultural encounter, migration, identity, orientalism, gender, environment, conflict, and globalization. Includes a significant engagement in writing as a form of critical inquiry and scholarly expression to satisfy the WID requirement. May be repeated for credit provided the topic differs. See department for more details.
As a result of completing the course, students will gain familiarity with the work of key international writers and filmmakers from modern Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. They will master some key concepts of postcolonial literary studies (“imperialism,” “globalization,” “Orientalism,” “modernity,” and “subalternity”), and develop their close-reading and analytical skills for literary and film texts. Students will also demonstrate enhanced cross-cultural knowledge about different historical and cultural approaches to imperialism, gender, and globalization, as they are aesthetically represented.
