Global Literature and Social Justice



What is the role of art in society? Does art have the capacity to provoke social change? These are only some of the questions students will consider in this class. Global Literature and Social Justice will explore several works of literature, film, and other media in a global context. With an emphasis placed on contemporary works, students will discuss how texts use a variety of strategies for understanding, making visible, and at times influencing social change. Students will consider how these texts relate to nation, history, gender, class, and sexuality. Students will grapple with interesting and challenging questions and debates.
