Description
This course provides an advanced study of contemporary North American and European fiction with particular reference to the concept of postmodernism.

The postmodern critique of metanarratives and the literary canon will be addressed through discussion of contemporary feminist, black, native American, post-colonial and post-human narratives. Key theorists of postmodernity, such as Jean Baudrillard, Umberto Eco, Donna Haraway, bell hooks, Linda Hutcheon, Fredric Jameson, and Jean François Lyotard will be read in conjunction with specific literary works.
