CLITR 3329 Contemporary Ethnic Literature

This course explores the works of authors representing the many ethnic communities now comprising the United States: African American, Native American, and Asian American, among others. We will focus on certain questions: what are that group's shared experiences and values, and how do these affect the kind of literature that group writes? What pre-existent literary traditions does that group bring with it, and how are these reflected in the literature? What aspects of the American experience are treated in this literature?
