Detailed Syllabus:

In the twentieth century the novel in translation has arguably emerged as the global literary form through which cultures most avidly express themselves and also identify others. Attention will be given to the emergence of the global “bestseller,” their formal variety and innovations. The course will explore the politics that underlies the success of this form over others, and the particular success of certain types of texts over other ones.
