ENGH 303 - Gender and Contemporary Anglophone Literature

4 credits
This course examines late twentieth-century and early twenty-first century Anglophone fiction that theorizes the relationship between gender and the social and economic processes that have come to be known as ‘globalization.’ How do writers like Tsitsi Dangarembga, Arundhati Roy, Hanif Kureishi, and Mohsin Hamid depict the production of masculinities and femininities in the context of growing economic inequality within and between nations? How are their literary explorations in conversation with the philosophical perspectives offered by Immanuel Wallerstein, Anne McClintock, Joan Acker, Barbara Ehrenreich and others? Finally, what does contemporary Anglophone fiction—primarily literature, but also film— bring to current debates about social inequality as well as to longstanding questions about the relationship between aesthetics and politics? Prerequisite: ENGH 150 , WGST 101   Equivalent: WGST 303   CLA-Breadth/Humanities, CLA-Breadth/Interdisciplinary, CLA-Writing Intensive, CLA-Diversity US, CLA-Diversity International
