ENGL 072. Global Modernisms

In this course, we will survey global fiction from the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries, tracing an arc of modernist literary practices that extends beyond the largely American and European coterie of high modernists. We will put pressure on the geopolitics of literary modernism(s), exploring how historical currents and theoretical frameworks breed new critical lenses for modernist form. And we will ask: what does it mean to be modernist?
