This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Nobel Laureate and Cornell alumna Toni Morrison's first novel, The Bluest Eye. Now considered a classic of American literature, the book explores the psychological traumas inflicted on African American children by racism and violence, while richly evoking the community that surrounds and struggles to protect them. In this course we will read the novel carefully, consider its impact on contemporary culture, and take part in an online reading and discussion that will be streamed around the world on October 8. Guest lectures will be provided by faculty from English, Africana, and Comparative Literature.

When Offered Fall.
