Transnational Reading of Two Authors

This course offers a comparative study of two authors whose works reach across national boundaries to reveal social and thematic affinities or interesting problems of contrast. Unlike English 395, which compares writers from the same national tradition, this version of the course offers transnational credit. This transnational comparison places English literature in a global context, allowing issues of place and space, origin and tradition, and local, national, and global influence to be investigated. The authors studied vary from year to year. Examples of possible pairings are Richardson and Franklin, Melville and Dickens, Munro and Lahiri, or Soyinka and Morrison.
