ENG 244 - World Literature: Travel and Migration

Migrancy is one of the most pressing issues of our world today. This course will focus on writings and oral culture about travel and migration produced by peoples from outside Europe and North America. We will look mainly, but not exclusively, at novels, poems, stories and podcasts originally written in English in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The topics of travel and migration will allow for comparison of what happens when people move from one place to another, whether as travelers, economic migrants, or refugees. These topics will allow us, as well, to understand how literary and oral forms travel and are continuously transformed.
