Students asking, I’m…

Students asking, I'm still finalizing the syllabus, but here's the booklist for my classes. The bookstore should have copies by the beginning of classes, but do feel free to buy used copies (most are available through Amazon Marketplace for about $5 each) and/or earlier editions. You must have copies of the texts, as we'll be referencing them extensively during class.

  • "The Man Who Would Be King," Rudyard Kipling (handout)
  • Leaving India, Minal Hajratwala
  • A Passage to India (film)
  • Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
  • The Lion and the Jewel, Wole Soyinka
  • Irish Writing: An Anthology of Irish Literature in English 1789-1939, Stephen Regan (excerpted handouts)

  1. Hey Mary Anne,

    Would you be able to tell me what books you’re planning on covering first in the 358 class? I’m probably going to order my books in chunks rather than all at once, so that would be a great help.

    Looking forward to another semester,
    Thai
