National Literature as World Literature WL 360 (4)
Maps out national literatures’ contributions to the world’s cultural heritage, whether in the form of one of the great authorial voices of a national tradition, a particular period or movement, or a defining theme. This exploration will tease out the ways in which these contributions are inscribed in a dynamic global matrix wherein cultures are negotiated and transformed through on-going dialogue. This course may be repeated once for credit when different topics are offered. Prerequisite: 45 units or permission of the department.
