Course Description

The past 25 years have produced a bounty of American fiction. Over 10 weeks, this course will introduce students to some of the US’s most important voices, from 1990s classics such as Toni Morrison’s Paradise to more recent works, including Junot Díaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and Jonathan Franzen’s divisive 2010 novel Freedom. We will discuss how these novels grapple with concepts of race and gender, and how they narrate and negotiate America’s troubled history.
