THE GLOBAL NOVEL: POST WHAT?
This course examines the recent emergence of novels in various parts of the globe that address a readership beyond their respective nations and regions of origins, sometimes even beyond the novelist s national language. These novels make a point of declaring that the form of the novel traditionally organized around the experience of a representative individual is now obsolete. Critics and scholars tend to describe these novels as displaying specific forms of post-ness, whether post-modern, post-human, post-apocalyptic, post-revolutionary, and post-exotic.
