Expanded Course Description
This course will examine a variety of texts that engage the modern state–its functions and possibilities; its ability to repress and coerce; its ability to forge new and enduring kinds of social connection; and what place, if any, it allows for literary culture. It will examine some of the ways in which literature and the state engage with one another—the tradition of utopian and dystopian literature; how the state surveilled and monitored radical writing in the twentieth century; and how writers wrote about war. A particular focus will be on how the state has helped produce or re-inforce forms of racial identity and racial/colonial oppression, and how writers have sought to resist those processes and imagine radical alternatives. Authors studied will include Kazuo Ishiguro, Claude McKay, J.M. Coetzee, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and D'Arcy McNickle.
