ENGL 53.32 Literature and Culture of the Americas

This course surveys a series of critical paradigms for studying the literature and culture of the Americas. We’ll explore a variety of approaches to hemispheric literary and cultural studies, which may involve analyzing comparative and shared romantic and revolutionary discourses; border cultures; state-sponsored literary institutions that cross national borders; inter-American attempts to imagine solidarity; and hemispheric aesthetic strategies and genres for mapping US empire, global capitalism, and settler colonialism. Authors may include Leonora Sansay, Martin Delany, Carmen Lyra, Gabriel García Márquez, Jamaica Kincaid, Valeria Luiselli, Fernanda Melchor, and Silvia Moreno-Garcia. All texts are available in English or in translation.
