ENLL 324 CONSTRUCTS OF IDENTITY IN ASIAN LITERATURE
T-TH-S, 9:00-11:30am
DR. LILY ROSE R. TOPE

The course examines how foundational texts in the literatures of Asia present plural constructs of the Asian identity. It also explores the pertinent contexts informing literary traditions in Asia – in concurrent mainstreams of social and political thought that influence literary production. The course traces how these traditions inspire texts whose aesthetics, formal structure, themes, and uses challenge a dominant western outlook. The course synthesizes how the discourse of empire, colonialism, the struggle with modernity, nationalism, the diaspora, and the fictive settlement of ethnic issues provide a common ground in appreciating Asia’s diverse literatures.
