This course examines the United States’ cultural diversity through American literature of the late 20th and early 21st century. Students will attempt to construct a more full understanding of American identity through the voices of Americans of widely varying backgrounds. Assigned works and authors range the spectrum of diversity, and include works that are written from different perspectives of gender, ethnicity, and culture. (Prerequisites: ENGL101 or ENGL110)
