ENG 535: Studies in Multi-Ethnic Literature
This course will explore a range of texts that reveal the ethnic diversity of North American literature, asking readers to consider both common themes and cultural specificities found in diverse “minority” literatures. The course will explore themes and theories of alienation, fragmentation, dislocation, hybridity, borderlands/border crossing, appropriation, resistance, and generational difference. The course will pay particular attention to language and the role it plays in defining reality. The course explores the ways ethnic writers both resist and appropriate dominant languages in an attempt to formulate their own modes of communication.
