ENGL 375 - Language, Literature, and Social/Cultural Difference


An examination of literary works as cultural artifacts, examining how they not only record and reflect the dynamics of social and cultural difference but also influence or resist change. Under investigation will be conflicts and modifications in cultural identification, how literature draws upon the lives and times of its authors, and how race, class, gender, and other forms of difference generate social and cultural tensions and express and embody them in literature. Recent topics include The I’s Have It, Global Race Matters in Film & Fiction, Black Women Writers, Walt Whitman’s America, Ethnic American Young Literature, History of the English Language, and Global Shakespeares. May be repeated for additional credit with a different topic.

Credits: 4
Terms Offered: Fall, Spring
