E615 Literature in English from Around the Globe (3 cr.)

In this course students explore texts that attest to the richness and variety of literature composed in English.  Texts from within and beyond the British Isles are examined individually and in relation to each other, especially with regard to Britain’s colonial history and the globalization of the English language.

Upon completion of this course, students are expected to be able to do the following:

  1. Analyze important elements of literary texts written in English, especially within their broader social, political, and cultural histories.
  2. Evaluate the possibilities and implications of the English language as a vehicle for literary expression.
  3. Employ effective literary discourse in original, organized, and sophisticated essays that defend a literary thesis with textual evidence.
  4. Consult and incorporate appropriate secondary sources in support of literary claims.
  5. Evaluate the suitability of various literary works for different pedagogical purposes.
