Postcolonial Studies: Literature, Theory, Practice (EASM173)

30 credits

This module engages with key aesthetic, critical and theoretical debates in postcolonial literary studies. From anti-colonial resistance struggles to the theoretical emergence of the field in the 1970s, to recent theoretical-conceptual iterations, this module will place postcolonial debates alongside a range of theories and literatures from the so-called ‘postcolonial’ world, including Africa, Britain, the Caribbean, and South Asia.
