ENG 603 Postcolonial Re-imaginations: “The Empire Writes Back”

Description

This course is designed as an introduction to a wide variety of both literary and theoretical works that cover the period of British colonial expansion and its postcolonial aftermath. It is conceived as a comparative literature/culture course—for instance, to put the First World literature in dialogue with that of the Third World or to re-read a 18th-century literature with a 20th-century perspective. For such comparative course, literatures from Africa, India, and the Caribbean as well as from England will be selected. Through these works, we will study what the globalization of modern culture has brought about in such areas as race, gender, language, and nationalism.
