Formerly Caribbean Literature 1: Beginnings to 1970 3 Credits; 3 Class Hours

The course will examine works by Shakespeare and his influences from the Renaissance to the present. Students explore a variety of adaptations of Shakespeare’s works from a global perspective and connect his works to the cultural and political context of his literary descendants. Students also study adaptations of multiple genres, including novels, film, and music that reinterpret or reimagine Shakespeare’s works, paying close attention to the ways in which those reinterpretations and adaptations reflect traditions and changes in the historical, social, cultural and political context of the respective environments. Students will examine Shakespeare’s works alongside respective adaptations ranging from Africa, the Americas, Asia to the Caribbean. Some other themes may include but are not limited to the issues of “discovery,” enslavement, exile, (im)migration, ethnic cleansing, transnationalism, literary and social revolutions.
