|(3 cr.) After World II, the U.S. experienced profound
change, including the Atomic Age and the Cold War
(and later wars on drugs and terrorism),
unprecedented global travel and migration, Civil
and Human Rights movements, and astonishing
technological revolution. Engaging these seismic
shifts, cultural expressions have changed as well.
This course focuses on the late 20th-21st-century
writers who reimagined our world, among them
Postmodernists such as Nabokov, political writers
such as Kerouac, writers of color such as
Morrison, and poets and innovators of form such
as Plath or Anzaldua.
