ELIT 417 - Intercultural Contexts: Literatures of Power, Place, and People (IN-10) (W)


3 hours

A study of diverse international literature. This reading and writing intensive course will focus specifically on literature of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, with special attention to texts that address the imperialist project and its aftereffects, as represented in indigenous and postcolonial cultures. The course material will also investigate how representations of the Other, concepts of moral responsibility, and preoccupations with Western degeneration structure political and cultural boundaries, which are countered and critiqued by those from margins of society.
