ENGL 332G - PII Asian Literature

This course presents an overview and promotes an understanding of contemporary socio-historical, cultural and literary development in the Asian countries, using a multidisciplinary approach. The course will include topics like approaches to Asian studies (orientalism, Subaltern Studies, Globalism etc); literary and cultural legacy, religious and ethnic questions; gender and class, genocide and ethnic cleansing, globalization and neocolonialism, Asian diaspora and immigrant experience, and public culture and how they shaped and changed cultural and literary formation in the Asian world in the 20th century. We will also look at Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and other indigenous religions and what it means for the contemporary society and culture of the United States, to include cultural stereotyping and marginalization of different groups. Students will be encouraged to understand and appreciate the scope of cultural, social and historical changes in the Asian world by examining examples of this change and the response to this in literature, history and film based upon these factors.
