Course Content

This course explores a variety of approaches to the comparative or transnational study of literature through readings of several kinds: texts from different cultural traditions that raise questions about the nature and function of literature; texts that comment on, respond to and rewrite other texts from different historical periods and nations; translations; and readings in critical theory. The course will address themes such as race, class, gender and sexuality, religion, colonialism, immigration, exile, and integration and alienation in relation to key literary texts.
