Spring 2009 not offered
AMST 218, ENGL 236, FGSS 236|
Novels by Winter, Gilroy, and Hodge provide perspectives from an older generation of Caribbean-born writers publishing in English after 1960. Paule Marshall, Audre Lorde, and other writers associated with the black women writers Renaissance will be considered anew. The works of younger émigrés to North America will broaden the exploration of language, geography, and cultural hybridity. Readings include critical perspectives from Caribbean scholars.
