Co-meets with  AAS 6995 /ENGL 6995 .

S. Wong.

Race, comparison, and time—what do these terms have to do with each other? What does it mean to be in time, or out of time? What are some other ways of inhabiting time, or of being inhabited by time? What is the time of the racialized subject? How is time and temporality figured in literature? Some of the writers we’ll be reading in the course include Carolivia Herron, Carlos Bulosan, Jamaica Kincaid, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, and Joy Kogawa. Other readings will be drawn from a range of disciplines, including selections from the work of Johannes Fabian, Frantz Fanon, Dipesh Chakrabarty, Walter Benjamin, Ernst Bloch, Cathy Caruth, Thomas Bender and David Wellbery.
