Voices of Resistance & Protest (ENG-360)
This course will examine the novels of contemporary international writers who use their creative voices to confront the various structures of oppression that define and confine both their own and their nations' identities. From Chinua Achebe (Nigeria) to Nawal El Saadawi (Egypt), these men and women have written narratives that explore issues of power, creativity, independence, resistance and more. We will read their novels as well as secondary texts that address how literary perspectives are informed by cultural vocabularies and national histories. This course will satisfy the Differing Cultural Perspectives requirement. Prerequisites: ITW 101 and one 200 level English course.
