This course is designed to introduce students to critical approaches to the study of ethnic literatures and cultures from the long twentieth century. In its different iterations, the course will take a comparative approach, surveying a wide range of literary genres by authors from Asian American, Black, Chicanx, Latinx, multiracial, Native American and other diverse communities. Students will build an analytical foundation for examining literary production and learn to link form, artistry, and concept to histories and politics of colonialism, identity, migration, nationhood, race, and segregation.
