LOND 932 - The Place of “Islam” in British Discourses of Multiculturalism and Immigrant Identity

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 Hours
Attribute: 3 HU, CD

Through select contemporary literary texts and relevant theoretical/critical essays, this course will examine how “Islam” is positioned within dominant (white) discourses of multiculturalism and immigrant identity in present-day Britain. We will examine The Satanic Verses, My Son the Fanatic, White Teeth, Brick Lane, and Maps for Lost Lovers. With Satanic Verses as our paradigmatic text, we will also examine some of the significant debates and controversies surrounding it as they relate to our subject. The course will be reading and writing intensive and require significant student engagement.
