This course examines American literature in relation to the field of ethnic studies. We'll examine how the Third World Liberation Front strikes at San Francisco State and UC Berkeley led to the emergence of ethnic studies as an interdisciplinary field of study, in turn transforming the landscape of American literature and literary history. In addition to analyzing the themes and forms of Native American, Asian American, and Chicano/Latino texts, we will study the recent controversies concerning the place of ethnic studies in education today.
