Description: This course has two components: one, it looks at recent fiction in English by U.S., British, and international writers that deal with global and transnational issues; and two, it studies the work of recent cultural critics who provide new understandings of an increasingly networked world as well as the imaginative and narrative tools --fictional, artistic, cinematic , electronic and visual--that we use to process the fast-paced realities of contemporary globalization.
