Syllabus Description:

People cross borders upon waking, leaving home, or entering a classroom, and many literatures share a preoccupation with stepping across literal and figurative thresholds. However, the ubiquity of nation states have rendered the national border an object of urgent concern across many literatures. This course explores narratives about people moving through space in 20th century poems, short stories, and novels, the functions of spaces like roads, wildernesses, and cities within particular narratives and cultures, and the various strategies one might employ for embarking on a cross-cultural comparison of literary works.
