Cosmopolitanisms and By the Sea

Frej Sønder Rasmussen

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The present synopsis proposes an interlinked study of theories of cosmopolitanism and Abdulrazak Gurnah's novel By the Sea. The aim is to discuss different notions of cosmopolitanism and investigate to what extent they are at work in Gurnah's work. Hopefully, both the analysis of the novel and the discussions of cosmopolitanisms will be enriched by the link which is created between them.
