ENG 405 (Post-Colonial Lit.)

Topics in Post-Colonial Literature: Reading across a wide range of national and regional literatures, this class will highlight the struggles of the non-Western peoples to express their complex postcolonial experiences in the age of globalism. The quest for freedom and authenticity that unites many of the world’s non-European poor will be examined in the modern literary traditions of Arabs, Africans, Muslims, and the indigenous peoples of North and Latin America. The course examines the legacies of the slave trade, imperialism, and late capitalism as backdrops against which such writing takes place.
