Literature and Social Justice Now


Dominant forms of contemporary communication can reinforce our ideological bubbles, driving out counternarratives and making it all too easy to surround ourselves with arguments that reinforce our worldviews. But in asking us to dwell inside the minds and lives of others in worlds far from--or at times disturbingly close to--our own, literature urges us to imagine alternatives to our current social and political order. These courses focus on the intricate relations of power interweaving individuals, institutions, and systems across cultures and historical periods, and open our eyes to enduring social and political issues.
