Poetics Seminar: Cross-cultural Literature

This course focuses on the cultural production of community and identity by engaging with a variety of literary texts from diverse geographic and national sites. Students examine how authors create, and readers read, through their own sets of experiences in cultural and ethnic contexts; the relations of power and knowledge, politics and aesthetics; and the utility or failure of literary theory to address cultural and ethnic struggles.
