More Information

Section Description

How do we narrate and visualize race? How do narrative and visual depictions alter across different racial groups? This course will examine how American literature and popular culture construct certain ?racial knowledges? in the formation of American identity. Through a comparative race approach, we will focus on a wide range of literary texts (novels, short stories, personal essays/memoir, non-fictional essays as well as interdisciplinary theoretical essays) and visual ?texts? (feature films, music videos, television, and websites). Furthermore, we will also examine how various genres (including the immigrant narrative, comedy/satire, speculative fiction) offer unique approaches to the narrative and visual constructions of race and difference. Some themes and theoretical concerns we will explore include: whiteness and multicultural angst, race and representation, gender and sexuality, immigration and assimilation, and ethnic humor and satire.
