HONR 2160 - Literatures of Resistance

4 credit hours
Significant shifts in political and economic systems invite resistance in various forms, and yet many who dare to speak truth to power or express “subversive” points of view are silenced and/or persecuted. This course will examine various literatures that were considered subversive, dangerous, or in violation of dominant doctrines of a particular time and place. We will explore the contexts that influenced writers to engage in literary acts of resistance, and we will considerwhy and howwriters subverted prevalent ideologies. Many writers risked their lives to demand that readers see the limitations of a particular worldview andshift perspectives, and we will consider the legacies of writers who dared to challenge dominant ideologies of their time.
