ENGL 279 - Imagining Borders

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
This course seeks to address the conceptual, cultural, historical, and political formation of borders in contemporary global society. By examining how literature and other forms of cultural production imagine and negotiate borders - the borders of a self and body, of a community, and of a civilization - students will obtain a stronger sense of the critical role that borders play, which will contribute to their development both intellectually and civically. Given the prominent visibility that the U.S.-Mexico border occupies in today’s media along with its historical importance in terms of organizing the cultural geography of the hemisphere, this border serves as a rich and foundational site for the course.
Prerequisites & Notes: Students should have completed a Writing Intensive course or gained Writing Certification in any course in the humanities. Requirements can be waived with instructor consent.
This course is cross-listed with CAST 279
