Course Description

This is a writing intensive class. A grade of C- or better in UCWR 110 is required to enroll. ENGL 273-01W #1795 is a writing-intensive class and is being taught in person at the LSC. Adopting an international perspective, this section of English 273 will focus on selected novels from Africa, the West Indies, South Asia, UK, and USA. Our main aim will be to examine the portrayal of such issues as nationalism, religion, race, ethnicity, gender/sexuality, and class/caste in the texts under study. In addition, we will analyze the cultural bases of contributing techniques, including structure, language, narrative focus, and characterization among others, to arrive at comparative assessments of the diverse fictional voices of modern and contemporary world writers. This course satisfies 3 credits of the Core Curriculum Tier-II requirement in Literary Knowledge & Experience. For English majors, the course counts as a 200-level elective for both the major and minor and also meets the 3-credit multicultural requirement.
