ENGL 016 PZ -Intro to World Lit: Texts on the Move


Institution: Pitzer College

Description: This course is an introduction to world literature, with a focus on global Anglophone fiction and its engagement with colonialism, postcolonialism, and the globalized world. We will examine texts from a range of geographical locations in the world with a unifying focus on travelers: wanders, exiles, laborers, emigrants, and “been-tos.” Students will appreciate the similarities that link world literatures as well as the differences and historical specificities that inform the contexts in which texts are read as well as the events they depict. Authors may include NoViolet Bulawayo, Arundhati Roy, Nadine Gordimer, and Teju Cole among others.
