ENGL346 - Twentieth-Century Fiction

In this course we will look at texts from twentieth century world literature and examine them from a postmodern and postcolonial framework. We will specifically focus on the ways in which conventional notions of time, space, and body have changed for new non-linear, fluid, and hybrid formations. Texts will include Metamorphosis by Kafka, Invisible Cities by Calvino, Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter, The White castle by orhan pamuk, and Season of Migration to the North by Tayeb Salih.
