Welcome to the Library Resource Guide for BANNED BOOKS
COLT0610C (Comparative Literature)
An examination of literary censorship in which we read various texts forbidden for putatively violating social, religious, and political norms in particular historical and cultural contexts. We also analyze the secondary literature surrounding the banning of these ostensibly 'dangerous' texts in order to theorize questions and assumptions about the power of art and the ironies generated by these debates.
