About the course:
At a time when questions of migration dominate public debate, this course asks of you to imagine literature in English as shaped by flows of people and transnational routes rather than nations and borders. Ranging from the cultures of the Black Atlantic to contemporary transnational and multicultural fiction, the course highlights key debates within literary and cultural studies about how migration, diasporic flows, violent displacements and statelessness, and ideas about transculturation and cultural hybridity have affected literature in English from across the globe. You will also explore the implications of colonialism, decolonization, and globalization for human mobility.
