ENG 333 - Postcolonial Literature


Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing.
This class is an introduction to postcolonial literature as a critical/theoretical approach, as well as a survey of representative literature as a critical/theoretical approach, as well as a survey of representative literature in the field. In term of criticism and theory, the class will cover key concepts-including "colonialism" and "postcolonialism" themselves-and examine the intersection between post-colonialism and other dimensions of cultural identity such as gender, race, class, and sex/sexuality. There will also be an introduction to the history of the field through key critical voices such as Edward Said, Chinua Achebe, and Homi Bhabba. Selected literary texts may come from a variety of postcolonial contexts from the late-19th century to the present, including Africa, India, the Caribbean, Ireland, and elsewhere.
