Spring 2014 Information: 

This course focuses on six novels (three written by women, three by men), each presenting a different perspective on American ethnic identity in the case of Chinese-Americans, Native Americans, African-Americans, Jewish-Americans, Dominican-Americans, and Mexicans in America. Through a comparison of novels by Maxine Hong Kingston, Louise Erdrich, Toni Morrison, Art Spiegelman, T.C. Boyle, and Junot Díaz, we'll explore how ethnic and cultural differences need not only be occasions for ignorance and conflict, but present opportunities for individual empowerment, interpersonal awareness, and cross-cultural creativity.

Course Description: 

A comparative study of ethnic literatures in the United States, including African-American, Arabic-American, Asian-American, Hispanic-American, Jewish-American, and Native-American literatures.
