Transnational Literature (1) University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

“Transnational Literary Studies” does not only comprise literature (and other media) that is produced across borders and in various languages (including translation), it also analyzes the common multi-lingual and multi-cultural basis inherent in aesthetic productivity. The focus point of this course is on text, author, genre, period, aesthetics, media, methods or translation, depending on the needs and interests of its participants and the research focus of the instructor.

Learning Achievement

The course offers a variety of literary texts under the aspect of "refugee experience". These range from the ongoing Syrian conflict to the never-ending Ex-Yugoslav situation. The syllabus is open to changes.
The class will discuss the various texts listed below, either in form of mails and short interpretations or in form of online discussions (based on available technology).
In the first two meetings we will discuss how to best conduct this class.

Identical to 02DSA61.
Lecture is conducted in English. Coronavirus management:
Because of the pandemic all classes in Tsukuba University, including this one, will be held online. This is very unfortunate for this class because it is so much based on lively discussion in the classroom. I hope we can find a productive way to do this class. For the time being, I am asking you to check manaba where shortly before Tuesday, April 28th, 4th period, I will post some reading material and inform you how we may be able to conduct the class. If you have any suggestion, please write a mail to my address (heselhaus.herrad.fw@u.tsukuba.ac.jp).
