Section Description

SUMMER 2014 ENGS 26: WORLD LITERATURE Course description: This section of the course will introduce American students to a variety of contemporary short stories drawn from the Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania. We will explore the various ways in which writers from different cultural traditions refract the kinship of humanity through their respective life-worlds and lived experiences. We will pay a close attention to each writer?s handling of issues like history, tradition, race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality, disability, and identity. Our main text will be the collection of short stories entitled "One World: A Global Anthology of Short Stories", edited by Chimamanda Adichie and Jhumpa Lahiri. We will also study some stories from Daniel Halpern's collection entitled "The Art of the Story: An International Anthology of Contemporary Short Stories".

Section Expectation

Students will be expected to read the prescribed short stories before class discussions.
