This course considers global women’s literature from the late nineteenth century to the present. The body of work we discuss will be global not just by virtue of the amalgamation of works we read, by authors from a variety of nations and continents, but also because they tell global stories, tales of migration and travel, of origins, adaptations, and returns. We will ask how women in particular represent global economic and cultural exchange, as well as how they represent experiences of place and nation, both familiar and foreign. Authors may include Toru Dutt, Olive Schreiner, Kamala Markandaya, Ama Ata Aidoo, Ruth Ozeki, Kiran Desai, Yaa Gyasi, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche.
