ENAM 0233 - Global English and New Media
*Global English in the New Media Environment* Far from spelling the end of literature, the rise of new technologies of communication has continually energized Anglophone literary production. Reading literature through the lens of media theory (Stuart Hall, Friedrich Kittler, Gilles Deleuze, Rey Chow) , students in this course will explore how the global circulation of information, media, and images has transformed the literary imagination. While we will sample canonical modernist engagements with earlier transformations in print and visual culture, our main goal will be to bridge the gap between media studies and Anglophone postcolonial literature throughout the world. Readings will be selected from Benyamin, /Jasmine Days/; Chimamanda Ngozie Adihchie, /Americanah/; NoViolet Bulawayo, /We Need New Names/; Karen Tei Yamashita, /Through the Arc of the Rainforest/; Zadie Smith, /Swing Time/; David Mitchell, /Ghostwritten/; and the poems of Jean Binta Breeze and Linton Kwesi Johnson. 3 hrs. lect.
