Writing Intensive Course Information

This class will give you a chance to read literature written in English that represents the wide range of authors beyond England and America. We will read novels and short stories set in former colonial territories around the world, with a focus on literature that uses science fiction, fantasy, and other speculative elements to report on the conditions of the postcolonial. The goals of this class are 1) to introduce you to new and interesting literature that will be both enjoyable and challenging to read, 2) to teach you about the ways that literature reflects the diversity of world experience, and 3) to help you practice your skills of literary analysis and written and verbal expression as befits a writing-intensive class. . Authors to be read will include Salman Rushdie, China Miéville and Nnedi Okorafor.

Peer review
 
 
All of the papers involving the study and interpretation of fiction and criticism will have multiple acceptable interpretations and explanations. A large part of our work, both in-class and on paper, involve discussion and debate of the meanings and implications of these texts.
The assignments will be distributed equally throughout the semester so that the students will constantly be able to work on and refine their projects.
