ENGL 202 - Justice and Power in Postcolonial Literature

An introductory survey into significant debates and texts in the field of postcolonial literatures. This course explores how the field engages with questions of race, gender, sexuality, class, caste, and nation-building in societies conditioned by colonialism and decolonization movements. It also considers how writers located in the Global South or in the West as migrants navigate their spaces when faced with inequality and marginalization. Placing texts from multiple regions in conversation with one another, this course draws from Anglophone and translated materials to explore the meanings of postcoloniality through novels, plays, films, poetry, graphic art, and critical theory.
