ENG 343W - African American Literature

3 credits
This course will examine oral storytelling, as well as colonial and post-colonial prose, poetry, and drama by African American writers to present day. An emphasis in political, historical, and cultural contributions and challenges will help students understand how this literature has been constructed and reconstructed according to how African Americans view themselves and are understood in today’s literary canon. This course will also seek to analyze trends, values, and layers of multicultural traditions by writers of all genders. Students will be able to expand current literary conversations by contributing their own voice and experiences in order to understand how they identify with underrepresented groups in Western culture. Offered TBA. Prerequisite(s):  . Recommended lower-level literature or introduction to literature class or permission of Program Chair.
