ENG 240 - Global Literature Credits: 3


Offers an introduction to reading literature in global and historical contexts. Readings will focus on literatures from multiple national sites, primarily those produced outside England and the US. The course will consider a variety of topics of comparative literary study, such as transnational identities, cultural translation, diaspora, and historical contact zones. Particular focus and genre will vary according to instructor. The course may focus on a theme (e.g., the romantic hero, utopian literature, the poetry of war) or a region (e.g., literature of sub-Saharan Africa, Magical Realism of South America, literature of the European Avant-Garde). Course work will include at least one analytical essay.
