Type E: Indigenous Content - Global Literatures in English

English 2510 Global Literatures in English
A study of literature and cultural expression in English from around the world, including Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and the South Pacific, with an emphasis on Indigenous texts. English is a global language, spoken by over a billion people who have creatively reshaped it to tell stories that reflect their diverse social, historical, political and cultural contexts. These stories both respond to colonial histories, and promote cultural continuity. Issues of nationalism, colonialism, globalization, indigeneity, migration and race will be studied through a variety of literary, cultural, and theoretical texts.
