This subject introduces students to a number of fascinating and important literary works from across the globe. Considering the ways that literature interacts with the political and material conditions of empire and nation, students will closely examine texts from various parts of the world (e.g. North America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific) including those written from diasporic and first nations perspectives. Throughout the subject students will explore different ways that world literary space has been conceptualised and interrogated. In doing so, they will reflect upon literatures place within broader systems of representation and power.
