Cíle předmětu
The purpose of this course is for students to read and write about contemporary issues in ethnic literatures of the United States. Special emphasis will be put on the ways in which race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality shape personal, cultural, and social realities. Themes of double consciousness, social construction of race and ethnicity, cultural hybridity, immigration, assimilation, passing, exclusion and marginalization, geographical and psychological displacement, as well as artistic representation are central in these selections of literature. This course will explore how wider social and cultural forces shape the philosophical outlooks and esthetic sensibilities of ethnic American writers and artists as students will be expected to read, critically reflect on and engage with written texts and visual representations such as films and musicals. The writing component built into the course will help students learn and practice the basics and expectations of scholarly essays as well as help them prepare for the final comprehensive exam essays in cultural studies and literature at the end of their undergraduate studies.
