This subject deals with the way that Czech culture is reflected in anglophone literature from the nineteenth century to the present. This is not primarily an analysis of Czechness, but rather the aim is to use this culture as a way to explore theoretical approaches to transnational negotiations, moving through imagology (Leerssen), and postcolonial ideas of the other (Said). We will explore how integral stereotypes are to anglophone literature in its different phases during the twentieth century, asking to what degree does Czechness culture (which of marginal importance to the anglophone world) allow us to illuminate some of its main dynamics. Among these last, we will cover the New Woman (Doyle), anti-semitism (Trollope, Christie), Cold War culture (Ginsberg, Roth, Kazan).
