I am in need of assistance especially from fellow book lovers out there. One of my assignments as a teaching assistant is to create a dream syllabus for a class I would want to teach at the college level. Being a shoujo and Asian drama fan, I decided to create a syllabus involving the romance genre.
I already have a couple of texts in mind, but I would like some input from you all. What romance literature would you recommend for a class? Or if you were in a class that involves romance literature, what would you want to read?
Things To Keep In Mind For Recommendations:
- Books should have romance as a major genre/theme.
- You can recommend any book from any time period or foreign culture (as long as there’s an English translation).
- I an open to books that have interracial relationships and LGBT & Queer relationships.
- I am also open to other mediums (manga, movies, and etc.) just as long as in the comment section you can explain why it has some academic value to it.
Thank you very much! I look forward to reading your suggestions!
