Examines the ways in which race and issues surrounding race (e.g., how the notion of race originated and developed; how race differs from ethnicity or cultural tradition, etc.) have been expressed in or otherwise have affected works of literature. The course may focus on a specific time period and/or group (e.g., race and the Harlem Renaissance) or may more generally survey the ways in which so-called racial marking can affect both the construction and reception of literary texts.
