Reading Literature: Border-Crossings
This course investigates the multitude of borders crossed in and by literature. Reading literary works by ethnic, diasporic, and Indigenous writers, we will consider the divisions between identities, cultures, histories, and geographies that these texts both illuminate and transgress. Themes we will explore include capitalism and class difference, racial violence, settler colonialism and U.S. empire, and queer diasporas. Just as importantly, we will analyze how these literatures span the borders of different genres and media, in the form of poetry, plays, short stories, and novels. Authors include: Claudia Rankine, Ocean Vuong, Toni Morrison, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Marie Clements. 3 hrs. sem.
