Staff English Book Club

2019-9-27

The Staff English Book Club this semester focuses on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s seminal novel, “Americanah”, a complex reading which deals with issues pertaining to the dichotomies associated with self-identity.  Race, immigration, integration, and love all go to shape the development of the characters, and how they deal with inner truth in juxtaposition to outward appearance.

Meeting every other week throughout the semester, our group of 15 SUSTech Staff members will analyse, deconstruct and discuss this book, taking into account our own personal experiences as well and how they shape our viewpoint.  Gender issues transformed through the immigrant experience and notions of love defined by the past, yet looking towards the future. 

This is the sixth book read within the Staff English Book Club, and it promises to bring us unique perspectives while also expanding our worldview.
