Fall 2009 not offered
This course will introduce students to some of the seminal novels written by Africans and those in the black diaspora. It attempts to understand why, despite coming out of different geographic locations, these authors find themselves confronted with similar issues. Thus, some attention will be paid to the historical and cultural context that led to the writing of these novels. While also being products of history, these novels in their own way have given rise to different understandings of the historical past and thus should not be seen as only products of history, but also makers of it.
