91283 ENL3654 Black British Literature Web Web Not Online

 The element of ‘blackness’ posed a tint of challenge to the British political and cultural hegemony. It provokes the issue of decentering  structural supremacy of the sign ‘British’ that played a key role in the making of Empire or breaking apart nations. Resulting from the slave trade, Britain always had a black presence in the margin of its history for the last four hundred years; however, after the Second World War, a massive number of immigrants from all its former colonies made blackness a complicated rupture in the solid foundation of Britishness. “Black British” has been used by some critics in reference to South Asian, African, and Caribbean British writings alongside each other ; on the other hand, there are critics who use the term to refer to Britain’s African-Caribbean and African origin.

We will map out the trajectory of black presence in British Literature using the lenses of history, politics, and culture. Like Robinson Crusoe, we will follow the footprints and trace back the black presence in the island of British history and observe Britain’s painful process of naming/ renaming of the black presence, and the blackness’s literary and political struggle to make its presence noted in the imagined literary community of British Literature.

   The aim of this course is to encourage you to hear and converse with the many voices that speak of our culture. Because cultural conversations are cross disciplinary in their very core, it is only logical that this course will bring all those different voices and aspects together. This course will therefore explore the transdisciplinary areas of cultural studies in relation to various genres of literary and popular media. In its attempt to connect the issues of texts and/in cultural contexts, this course will use identity as a prime motif and invite students to bring popular texts, movies, TV shows, and novels under critical scrutiny. Throughout the semester, you are expected to perform the role of a critic and scrutinize/analyze various elements of socio-politico-cultural ideology contributing to the formation of individual identity.

ENL 3296.0W61: Gothic Literature (Hasanat)

Spring 2018

This course will explore the origins and development of Gothic literature in the British Isles. Gothic literature begins in the eighteenth century, as a counterpoint to  and reaction against  Neoclassicism.  It replaced the Neoclassic obsession with order, proportion, reason and beauty with disorder, disproportion, irrational, and sublime. The Gothic confronts and embodies the fears of sexuality, foreignness, economic displacement, and knowledge. During this semester, we will explore the history and theory of the Gothic. We will read classic Gothic novels and explore them in context of the theories of  Burke’s and Kant’s Sublime, and Freud’s psychoanalysis, among others.
