ENGL.Q 125 - Global Identities


(PEQ English/Literature) This course explores the ways diverse conceptions of identity shape worldviews through the study of global narratives of identity from different time periods and in different literary forms. The course argues that identity is shaped in the intersection of global structures and personal desires. Using cultural studies of identity, we will examine: the complexities of adaptation or resistance to new cultures; hybridity; the journey as metaphor and psychological odyssey; intergenerational conflicts; protagonists’ representations and negotiations of national and ethnic identities; and the interconnections of language culture and sense of self. Course Codes: BR. This P(EQ) course counts as a Global course.
