Fulfills the “Global Literature in English” Requirement

In our current political moment, migrants, refugees, exiles, and people in transit, as well as policies about these people, are in the news every day. In English 632, we read narratives, both classic and contemporary, about experiences of migration and exile, and put them in counterpoint with today’s news.
