Course Description: This course examines several iconic works of colonial, postcolonial, and diasporic writing from the late-19th century to the present. It investigates the writers’ forms and styles and the way they address themes such as civilization, slavery, cultural encounter, interracial conflict, and desire. Students learn about theoretical concepts such as degeneration, orientalism, nationalism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, and globalization. They also investigate the ways writers have used the space of literature to critically comment and reflect on some of the more important social and cultural problems facing ex-colonial and metropolitan societies today.
