ENGL 094 PZ -Growing Up Postcolonial

Institution: Pitzer

Description: Description: This world literature course will survey global Anglophone fiction, with a focus on coming-of-age stories. We will study the genre of the bildungsroman (German for “novel of education” or “novel of formation”) in postcolonial fiction, with attention to the ways the genre is adapted or modified, and we will assess the utility of child narrators to comment on socioeconomic conditions and historical events. We will analyze childhood as a historically-contingent category, and we will consider the ways that postcolonial contexts-including economic, historical, cultural dimensions-shape the development and integration of the individual protagonists of these “formation” texts.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
