World Literature and Postcolonial Studies (EASM184)

30 credits

This module engages with key and emerging aesthetic, critical and theoretical debates in world literature and postcolonial literary studies. From anti-colonial resistance struggles, to decolonisation and the question of political agency in peripheral societies, and   to recent and timely  iterations of environmental justice, globalisation and writer activism, this module will place debates on world literature and postcolonial studies alongside an exciting range of literatures from the so-called postcolonial world, including  Africa, Britain, the Caribbean and South Asia.
