This course will serve as a general introduction to the more focused areas of study developed in intermediate and upper level LATS course. Constructing Race and Ethnicity in the U , source: The Spanish discovery and conquest of this continent created Latin America and the Caribbean out of the diverse and complex realities of the pre-Columbian world.

Bharati Mukherjee specifically rejects the label "Indian-American," though she is an immigrant from India, and Rushdie prefers to be thought of as a sort of multinational hybrid (though he has, on occasion, used the label "postcolonial" in his own writing). Hanif Kureishi is more English than Pakistani in his outlook, and many Caribbean-born writers living in England are now classed as "Black British."
In practice, postcolonial literary studies are often sharply divided along linguistic lines in a way which simply reinforces Eurocentric attitudes. Latin American postcolonial studies are seldom explored by those laboring in English departments. Francophone African literature is generally neglected by Anglophone African scholars. Because of these failures to cut across linguistic boundaries, the roles of England and France are exaggerated over those of the colonized regions Faulkners novel The Sound and The Fury (1929) breaks up the narrative into four sections, each giving the viewpoint of a different character (including a mentally retarded boy). To analyze such modernist novels and poetry, a school of New Criticism arose in the United States, with a new critical vocabulary. New Critics hunted the epiphany (moment in which a character suddenly sees the transcendent truth of a situation, a term derived from a holy saints appearance to mortals); they examined and clarified a work, hoping to shed light upon it through their insights. 62 V POETRY 1914-1945: EXPERIMENTS IN FORM Ezra Pound (1885-1972)Ezra Pound was one of the most influential American poets of this century , source: The program features three core components: student designed curriculum, experiential learning and a research oriented intellectual commons.

His Clan Meeting: Births and Nations: A Blood Song (1971), which likens cooking to surgery (splicing the meats with fluids), begins we reconstruct lives in the intensive / care unit, pieced together in a buffet. The poem ends by splicing together images of the hospital, racism in the early American film Birth of a Nation, the Ku Klux Klan, film editing, and x-ray technology: We reload our brains as the cameras, the film overexposed in the x-ray light, locked with our double door light meters: race and sex spooled and rung in a hobby; we take our bundle and go home , cited: Martí, José poet and essayist, patriot and martyr, who became the symbol of Cuba’s struggle for independence from Spain.

In other instances, coercion was at work. In frontier societies such as southern Chile and northern New Spain, intractable wars with native peoples fueled a lively traffic in indigenous children Perry, commander of the United States naval forces in the China seas, was a staunch expansionist. Back in 1852 he warned President Fillmore that the British, who had already taken control of Hong Kong and Singapore, would soon control all trade in the area.
