EN 367 - Contemporary U.S. Literature (1945-Present)
(3 cr.) After World II, the U.S. experienced profound change, including the Atomic Age and the Cold War (and later wars on drugs and terrorism), unprecedented global travel and migration, Civil and Human Rights movements, and astonishing technological revolution. Engaging these seismic shifts, cultural expressions have changed as well. This course focuses on the late 20th-21st-century writers who reimagined our world, among them Postmodernists such as Nabokov, political writers such as Kerouac, writers of color such as Morrison, and poets and innovators of form such as Plath or Anzaldua.
