This course explores the journey as theme and metaphor, as well as reading itself as a journey through—among other things—space, time, form, and identity. As we navigate through the readings, we will encounter questions about self and other, the real and the fictional, the historical and the fantastic. Students should be prepared to read closely and to engage with challenging and surprising texts. Readings to include: Othello by William Shakespeare; Dracula by Bram Stoker, Kindred by Octavia Butler; Exit West by Mohsin Hamid; Dictee by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha.
