Rethinking World Literature
ENGL 316
Spring 2018
Section: 01  

Globalization has changed the speed at which people, goods, information, and ideas circulate in space. It has also changed how we read and write, and what we read and write. What does the "world" in "world literature" mean, and who writes world literature? To better understand how recent economic, cultural, environmental, technological, and political transformations affect our understanding of world literature, we will read key theoretical works that interrogate world literature as a category, along with literary works that thematize the scales of global comparison.
