Syllabus Description:

Toni Morrison

In the wake of Toni Morrison’s passing this course pays tribute to her life and incredible legacy—literary, critical, political, and historical.  We will read a selection of her novels, other writings and interviews over the course of the quarter, and will work together to build up thematic lines of inquiry including (but in no way restricted to) the afterlife of slavery; historical memory, trauma and forgetting; and gender, genre, form and power.  Students are expected to complete a conference length paper, a set of reader responses, and a short paper on criticism.
