Abstract:This course will examine the universal theme of “coming-of-age” by focusing on diverse works from disparate cultures across history. “Growing up” involves not just getting older, but also experiences of journeying and searching for meaning. These transitions vary across class, gender, and race and can encompass immigration, war, romance, politics, and education. We will focus on select stories told through art, film, and literature from Africa, Middle East, and India to examine the experiences of the authors and readers in these diverse cultures.
