A new on-line course offered this Summer


An Introduction to

Caribbean Literature
The years following independence from Britain in the 1960's saw an explosion of exciting writing from the English-speaking nations of the Caribbean. Many writers turned to West Indian folk culture while others looked to African roots or even used conventional Western forms to express concerns of race, identity, sexism, and colonialism. In this course we'll be reading and discussing some great stories, poems, and memoirs by folks like Jamaica Kincaid from Antigua, Derek Walcott from St. Lucia, Merle Hodge of Trinidad, Paule Marshall and George Lamming of Barbados, and many more. This course has a D2 designation--it will help you fulfill the diversity requirement.
