World Literature – The Thing Around Your Neck (HS only) (hannah)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a series of 12 short stories exploring the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Africa and the United States.

Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow, and longing, these stories map, with Adichie’s signature emotional wisdom, the collision of two cultures and the deeply human struggle to reconcile them. 

This class will include reading (in and outside of class), analytical writing, critical discussion, and studying contextual African history, especially about Adichie’s native Nigeria.
