Description

This unit explores the cultural negotiations between Europe (especially Britain) and the United States over several centuries. Developing concepts about national literatures, the unit uses comparative theories and practices to assess transnational cultural negotiations. We consider historical changes to the geopolitical order of things, examining how literature and film reflected and contributed to collaborative and combative transnational relationships. Key topics include the decline of British cultural and political power, European influences, and the contested rise of the United States.
