Course Description

This course will focus on short stories, novels, and films that feature marvels, spells, magical occurences, and moments of bodily flight, body-soul exchanges, enchanted creatures, and fantastical transformations that disrupt the rules of scientific reality. Through secondary readings and in-class discussions, we will connect these disruptions to political discourses negotiated within each of their texts, such as literary expression of minority identities, the re-imagination of postcolonial ideologies, the construction of indigenous environmental ecologies, and the emergence of post-nationalisms in their local contexts. Cross-listed as ILVS 91-01
