Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Contents: The seminar will focus on literary works by American, Anglo-Indian, British, Irish and Australian Aboriginal authors of the 20th and 21st centuries, dealing with different varieties of cross-cultural encounters and/or the impact of voluntary or enforced emigration from one's native home on individual and cultural identity - narratives of cross-cultural connection, collision, alienation as well as of self-conscious reassertion of ethnic identity and/or cultural difference. The texts discussed include T. C. Boyle's celebrated novel "The Tortilla Curtain" (1995), the play "The Keepers" (1988) by the indigenous Australian writer Bob Maza and short stories by Anglophone authors from different cultural backgrounds including Salman Rushdie, Jean Rhys, William Trevor, Roddy Doyle, Eoin McNamee, Eilis Ni Dhuibhne and others.
