English 63d. Migrations: Narrating Displacement

Instructor: Katie Daily
Day & Time: TBD | Location: TBD

This seminar will examine the intersections of individual identity and national identity with a unifying course theme of immigrant displacement as a lived experience. Accordingly, we will examine American immigrant experiences through nonfiction from different periods and voices. The texts we’ll read and discuss will challenge what we think we know about ourselves, about others, and about the idea of where we belong. Through our readings, class discussions, and writing requirements, we will develop a more nuanced and critical understanding of the constructed nature of displacement and what it means to belong.
