English 3951 Immigrant Literatures
Narratives depicting mobility, migration, and displacement challenge static models of national and cultural identity as they interrogate the ways in which multicultural, multilingual, and multinational – and the limitations of such terms – coexist within more narrowly defined categories of citizenship. Produced in the marginal spaces of β€œin-betweenness,” these narratives, often read as transnational, negotiate identities, cultures, languages and memories across, within, and beyond national boundaries. Texts discussed may include narratives of immigration, assimilation, and diaspora from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in various genres including fiction, poetry, drama, life-writing, graphic novels, phototexts, theory, and film.
