Course Description

Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C in ENGL 103 or ENGL 103W. This course introduces students to significant literature written by ethnic American authors, including African Americans, American Indians, Chicano/as and Latina/os, Asian Americans, and Jewish Americans. As such, it is designed to provide an overview of important works of American ethnic literature across genres and styles. We will explore both the literary and cultural elements that distinguish each work. In addition to discussing each text on its own terms, we will consider how each work functions within a broader context of ethnicity. As we go along, we will be introduced to specific cultural and historical issues related to each work. [Semesters Offered: Fall of even number years]
