In this course, students study the short story as a major literary genre, reading, interpreting and analyzing a representative selection of texts. Students apply critical contexts and practice various theoretical approaches to the readings. Prerequisite: ENGL110XM or ENGL110M. (Fulfills English or Humanities requirement)
Short Story: International Voices will take students on a world-wide journey, reading short stories from less-explored spaces by lesser-known authors about places we think we know quite well until we revisit them in story. By metaphorically crossing international boundaries, students will be exposed to various cultures, histories, and events that all apply to modern-day life and literature.
