Rethinking World Literature
ENGL 316
Spring 2015 not offered

If globalization has changed the speed at which people, goods, information, and ideas circulate in space, has it changed how we read and write, what we read and write, and what subjects we read and write about? Have practices of writing and reading in the 21st century noticeably changed worldwide? 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 several pivotal theoretical works along with literary works that thematize these scales of global comparison.
