Interpreter of Maladies

All Levels | Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies not only brought her fame as a new writer but also brought international focus to South Asian American writing and culture. We will explore several short stories in this collection in depth to understand culture, historical context, and craft in Lahiri’s short stories. Students should acquire and read the book before the class begins.

All students in reading classes will receive a book club discount on the instructor’s reading list at the Elliott Bay Book Co.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
