30 credits

This module introduces you to the rich heritage of South Asian narratives in literature and film. You will examine a diverse range of forms including short stories, poetry, memoir and film from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Through these texts you will explore how writers address the geography of borders, space, caste/class, sexualities and migration. Particular emphasis will be placed on how narratives engage with local and global contexts. The module is recommended for interdisciplinary pathways.
