LIT3931 Topics in World Literature 

Love, Loss, Taboo

This course explores representations of love and loss within different examples of world literature from 1850 to the present. Drawn from countries including Japan, China, Germany, Mexico, Ireland, Africa, and India, the poems, short stories, and novels we explore all deal specifically with the idea of ‘taboo’. From the forbidden desire of Bernhard Schlink's The Reader, through to early 20th-century Chinese female writers and their surprisingly forthright musings on sexuality, the course is designed to ask us provocative questions about love, loss, and what it means to be taboo.

91287 LIT3714 Literary Modernism Face to Face Instruction (P) Tu,Th 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM Not Online

   This course explores some of modernism's best-known writers through the medium of the little magazine. Studying a range of periodicals from the early 20th century, we examine how figures like Hemingway, Stein, McKay, Williams, Loy, and Pound used little or "small" magazines as expressive, alternative forms of publication through which they shared their unique forms of modernist experiment. We begin by looking at American and European magazines before expanding our focus to read magazines from places like Japan, the Caribbean, Russia, and other diverse global locations. These readings ask us to consider how magazines were key agents in the development of expatriate literature, the Harlem Renaissance, and transnational forms of literary modernism that pose important questions about nationhood, gender, race, and identity.
