ENG 360-01 - Seminar in Postcolonial Literature

4 credits (Spring)
“Globalization and the Novel.” This course explores the transformation in the English novel in the era of globalization, that is, post-1990. The English domestic novel gave us a vocabulary of private and public, inside/outside, home and abroad. How do these concepts change as economic and political events bring different parts of the world closer? What new subjects, themes, plots, and ideologies does fiction create in a world preoccupied by migrants, global cities, fears of terrorism, and impending eco-disasters? Writers we will read include Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Monica Ali, Amitav Ghosh, Mohsin Hamid, Salman Rushdie, and Zadie Smith.s.
