Faulkner and Morrison
AFAM 308
Spring 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENGL 383

This course will delve deeply into the works of two Nobel Prize-winning authors--William Faulkner and Toni Morrison--whose fiction interrogates and challenges what it means to be an American, what it means to be an African American, and, much more broadly, what it means to be human. Through close study of their novels, the seminar will consider of questions of narrative (form, function, and scope); history (national and personal, real and imagined), and identity (racial, gender, geographical).
