ENGL 242 - Anglophone Literature


A study of literature written in English-speaking countries other than the U.S. and Great Britain, including but not limited to : Canada, Ireland, India, Pakistan, Australia, South Africa, Anglophone Africa, and the Anglophone Caribbean. Course may consider multiple literary genres (drama, poetry, prose fiction, essays), in addition to visual art, film, and critical/theoretical contexts. We’ll consider how twentieth-century independence movements, as well as particular colonial and post-colonial histories, have reframed the languages and contours of contemporary literature into more transnational and/or diasporic contexts. We’ll also examine the meanings, cultural assumptions, and limitations of the term “Anglophone” and consider what’s at stake in acts of textual and cultural translation. Potential topics include: Anglophone Literature and Violence; Afro-Caribbean Literature; Anglophone Prison Literature; Anglophone Fiction and Film. Alternate years. (4 Credits)
