Invisible Men: Novels by Ralph Ellison & Viet Thanh Nguyen

In this course, we will discuss W.E.B. DuBois’s concept of double-consciousness and its adaptation into Ralph Ellison’s concept of invisibility in Invisible Man. Then we will read Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Sympathizer to see how he reworks those concepts for an Asian-American context.
