From Orientalism to Globalization: Debates in Postcolonial Studies (EASM128)

30 credits

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