ENG 475 - Postcolonial Literature

This course explores a range of world literature by focusing on texts written in nations of Asia, Africa, and the Americas formerly colonized by European powers.  We will read and discuss literature that helps us confront testimonies of violence, control, and injustice in a rapidly shrinking world-authors such as Chinua Achebe, Nadine Gordimer, Derek Wolcott, Salmon Rushdie, Isabelle Allende, and Jamaica Kincaid-examining the role that literature plays in illuminating and shaping cultures.

Prerequisite(s): Junior standing or permission of the instructor.

Offered Fall 2021 and alternate Fall semesters.
