Class Details

The subject matter of the course is novels of the last twenty years from around the world; perhaps the central question of the course is whether it makes sense today to consider literature in terms of national traditions. Novels will be examined under such (overlapping) rubrics as globalization, post-colonialism, and postmodernism. We shall read six or seven novels by such writers as Roy, Rushdie, Coetzee, Farah, Marquez, and Mahfouz.
