Only connect.implores the epigraph to E.M. Forster's 1910 novelHowards End. But how? What does true connection-platonic orromantic-mean in a transnational context? To begin to answer, wewill look to an array of modern Anglophone novels from theBritish Empire and its former colonies in Africa, Asia, and theCaribbean, with a particular interest in literaryrepresentations of friendship, partnership, and collaboration.Relationships between fictional characters might cross cultures,classes, genders, languages, and races. A fictional friendship might play an allegorical role, standing infor the relationship between former colonies and colonizers. Itmight fail or it might succeed-and its failure or success hasmuch to tell us about empire's evolution and colonialism'slegacy. Prerequisites: ITW 101 and one 200-level English course. DCP
