Course Description

In this course, we will study fiction across genres, eras, and locales. We will examine broad themes such as moving, marriage, home, the individual, and the conflicts surrounding globalization. Specifically, we will examine the fascinating and yet confusing concept of globalization, especially its relation to literature. The central questions that we will ask in this class are: what does globalization feel like?, and, what does it feel like to be transnational? The short fiction that we will read will help us answer this question, for literature is very good at revealing and performing feelings.
