Description
How do metropolitan taste and recognition affect dominant and emergent literatures and nations? How do particular contexts and award-winning texts exert pressure on existing criteria and values? How does the category "prized books" also implicitly constitute and comment upon a body of literature that is "unprized"? How do prized books redefine notions of readership and citizenship in the world of globalization and electronic access? Such questions will open up the idea of "world literature" not as an afterthought to the canon of "English" literature, but as an integral and definitive part of it. Students will read literature, speeches, and essays by winners of the nobel and other global literary prizes such as the booker and the commonwealth.
