ENGL 9002 PhD Seminar: Transnational Literary Studies (Spring: 3 )
In this seminar we will consider recent theories and methods that have productively complicated national paradigms that often define the field of literary studies. Taking a selection of nineteenth-century American novels as case studies, we will read major works in transatlantic and Afro-diasporic studies, border and hemispheric studies, and world-systems analysis, among others. Throughout, we will examine how national cultures and national literatures take shape and transform within larger networks of global interaction and exchange.
