ENGL 006A: World Literature

Course Description

This course surveys literature from around the world produced from the beginnings of oral history up to the year 1650. This course emphasizes literature outside the Anglo-American tradition. Students have the opportunity to analyze and compare texts representing various genres from different cultural regions, including Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands. Through this cross-cultural study of literature, students have the opportunity to engage in thinking critically about cultural diversity and related issues – such as global migrations, international power dynamics, and transnational patterns of inequality – in a world context.
