ENGL 851 - Critical Approaches to Multicultural Literatures

3 hours.
3 Credits

This course emphasizes literary evaluation, thematic analysis, and theoretical principles in discussing multicultural literature. Class discussions focus on in-depth analyses of multicultural theories and ethnic studies. Especially pertinent is the discussion of why Western theories cannot be applied universally. A comparative study of key concepts such as the search for identity, interpersonal relationships, assimilation versus deracination, and involvement in social causes will foster cross-cultural understanding, critical thinking, and honesty in expressing and defending one’s considered opinions.
