ENGL 360 - Globalization and Diaspora

FC ARHU CD WADV
4 credits
This course will develop critical frameworks for reading and writing about globalization and diaspora in literature. What does globalization look like from different disciplinary, historical, and geographic perspectives? How might we access and think about the complex workings of the global economy through narrative and the imagination? This course will demand a sustained inquiry into the cultural and political projects that emerge from, participate in, and critique the effects of transnational capital. In the second half of the class, we home in on the category of diaspora to better understand how it enables us to think critically about globalization.
Prerequisites & Notes: ENGL 299 or two 200-Level courses or consent of instructor.
