ENG 942

Postcolonial Interventions

The course considers the interconnections and ongoing dialogue between postcolonial and colonial discourses and literatures, and the socio-historical contexts from which the texts and theories have emerged. In giving comprehensive coverage to literatures and theories produced within former British colonies (including settler colonies) and the neo-colonial world, we shall examine key issues relating to the role that language, race, nation, ethnicity, gender, and subaltern identities play in shaping experience and producing knowledge.
