Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The Caribbean is not only part of North America but, since Hispaniola was the first European settlement in the Americas, it is where America as a European idea of the New World came into being. The subsequent entanglement of the Caribbean and continental North America has played out on many levels, including military occupations of Caribbean nations through the U.S., mass tourism to the Caribbean, and the transport of commodities from the Caribbean, while the variety of migratory movements between the two regions has led to a rich and vibrant field of Caribbean diaspora literature in the U.S. and Canada. In this course, we will be reading contemporary texts by diasporic Caribbean writers now located primarily in the U.S., including Roxane Gay, Edwidge Danticat, Junot Díaz, and Jamaica Kincaid. Drawing on Archipelagic American Studies, we will read them as texts which engage with the entangled histories of the Caribbean and the U.S. while mapping an understanding of North America focused neither on the U.S. nor on the continent, but as a web of places forming a shared but site-specific archipelago.
At the end of this course, students will be able to critically consider literary works which depict, navigate, and work through such archipelagic entanglements. Through secondary readings from hemispheric and archipelagic American Studies, diaspora studies, and Caribbean studies, among other fields, students will also have gained a theoretical understanding of “America” beyond the U.S., and will be able to draw on that understanding in their study of literature.
