The story of the late 20th and 21st centuries is a story of increasing global connectivity with increasing social isolation, of social uprisings for inclusive freedom with the rise of authoritarianism, repressive theocracy, and international terrorism, and of massive technological progress with seemingly insurmountable climate and health crises. This course explores this story.

Through the study of diverse literature across a multitude of genres from 1950 through the present day, students in this course develop skills of critical analysis and creative response while learning to look through literary lenses that provide novel perspectives.
