AAS 3015 - Cyborg Writing: Diasporic Literary Media

(crosslisted) ENGL 3915 , FGSS 3015  
(CA-AS)      
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

D. Wong.

This course examines the relationships between diasporic/transnational experiences and emerging forms, practices and technologies of literary production. We will analyze literary media, such as interactive graphic novels, text-based web art, multimedia poetry, unconventional novels and blogs in order to study Asian racial formation and cultural production. In particular, we will discuss the political act of writing and reading by considering feminist “cyborg writing”—a term coined by Donna Haraway—and thinking about gender, race, sexuality, labor and migration.
