Continuing our discussion of identity, students are asked to consider how identity is often not singular or fixed as represented in four contemporary novels. Each of the novels in this unit are centered around protagonists whose identity is “both/and,” focusing on multiplicity of the protagonist rather than singularity. In reading these texts, students will consider their own relationship with the idea of multiplicity and the ways in which their self-identities are “both/and” through reading the texts.
