In this course, we will take a closer look at migration literature from various parts of the world. We will start with a theoretical overview - what do we mean when we speak of migration literature? - and then mirror the transnational nature of migration literature with our course structure: migration is characterised by movement, by starting from one place, home, by moving across other places, and by arriving and staying at a new place. In the case of the literary examples we are discussing in this course, this movement entails the crossing of at least one international border and leaving behind the limitations of national literatures.

Our approach will be interdisciplinary and our examples intermedial, as we will look at literary texts, graphic narratives, readings, and a court decision. The authors whose texts we will be discussing come from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Pakistan, and the UK to Zanzibar/Tanzania. As this course comes in the form of a block seminar on four Saturdays in June, we will be having alternating reading and working phases. Be prepared to do group work and end-of-day presentations of your results! Please also bring a device with which you may access the internet, as we will be doing on-the-go research. 

All text will be made available!
