Literature Seminar: Cultural and Ethnic Lit

This course engages with literature and critical texts, such as African American poetry, Chicano/a fiction, Asian American hybrid works, or the like. The readings provide a diverse range of historical and cultural narratives. Topics may include the formation of marginalized subjectivities as well as the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, exile, diaspora, and assimilation. We examine how these language workers expand literary pathways and aesthetics. We map the changing territories of transnational American writers. Prerequisite: 3 credits of 300-level course work.
