ENGL360 - African, Indian and Caribbean Writers

Selected writers from countries formerly colonies of Britain, France, Denmark, etc. Attention to ways regions have developed distinctive political and aesthetic values resulting from indigenous traditions and foreign influences.

This course examines 20th- and 21st -century fiction, particularly novels, from South Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, focusing particularly on issues of migration and the refugee crisis. The novels will range in genre from realism to science/dystopian fiction to graphic novel. In addition to critical response essays, students will have the opportunity to write a creative piece, book review, opinion piece for a newspaper, or other mode of public writing. They might also develop a multimedia project in which writing is just one component and in which they respond to films or art from the various regions alongside the novels we read.
