TH 453SEM African and Caribbean Literature

Seminar

This course covers works by modern writers from Africa, the greater Caribbean, and their interconnecting diasporas and transnational contexts. A close look at storytelling traditions, aesthetic conventions, philosophical movements, and socio-political transformations helps students understand the ways in which texts of varied genres are created. Students also compare works in order to tease out the differences and similarities in literature across African and Caribbean cultures. By the end of the course students can discuss what terms like Africa,Caribbean,Afro-Caribbean, diaspora, and transnational mean and how the contact of world cultures shape their contours. They also gain a more thorough comprehension of the thought, lived experience, and artistic expression that lead to the writing of African and Caribbean literature. This course is the same as FR 453, and course repeat rules will apply. Students should consult with their major department regarding any restrictions on their degree requirements.
