ILS 253 Zakir Paul: Literature and Society: Power, Writing, Resistance

Download ILS 253 Z Paul 1162

In this course, we will study a series of literary texts in order to question the relations
between political power and resistance in modern writing. Instead of assuming that
literature lies beyond the pale of political life, we will explore the hypothesis that literary
works are marked by the very relations of power that structure subjects and societies at
large.
