Course Outcomes

We will look at the cultural, political, and historical factors that influence both the creation of the literature we will encounter and our reactions to it. We will explore the contextual situation of literature, how it exists in time and place to become what it is. Because this is a world literature course, our aim with all of this is a better understanding of other people, their places, their cultures 3. You will also be exercising your writing muscles this semester, exploring your thoughts about the literature you’ll be encountering through the full-blown writing process. You will also be expected to demonstrate your understanding of what you read through the writing process.
