What constitutes world literature? To find answers to these questions, we will read novels and short stories across national and cultural boundaries. We will read modern European, Australian, and American classics by Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Ernest Hemingway, Albert Camus, Jorge Luis Borges, Christa Wolf, and David Malouf. Beyond the boundaries of Western literature, we will inquire into the meaning of world literature. In light of this, we will read literature by Naguib Mahfouz, Orhan Pamuk, Salman Rushdie, and Azar Nafisi. We will discuss the literary movements of modernism, magical realism, and postmodernism. We will also focus on crucial debates about constructing Oriental and Occidental worlds and read secondary literature about Goethe's idea of world literature.
