ENGL 006AH: Honors World Literature

Course Description

Honors World Literature uses the pedagogical methods common to all Honors courses: interdisciplinary, writing- intensive, collaborative, and experiential instruction. Course content makes connection through a common theme with other courses offered within the specified transdisciplinary unit. 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 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 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.
