ENGL 211 - Narration + Identity (LS)
This course explores concepts and representations of identity in contemporary literary texts of at least two genres. Topics typically considered include the relationship between individual and collective identity; self-generated and externally generated constructions of identity; identity and voice; difference between and difference within communities; fixed and fluid identities; queer, raced, and classed identities, and more. Attendance is critical in this course as it combines lectures with a format in which students articulate and refine their responses to the course material through extensive discussion.
Any two 100-level SCCS courses (ENGL, HUMN, CCST, AHIS), or consent of the Chair in consultation with the instructor.
