This course will introduce students to questions and problems central to postcolonial literary studies. Through novels and theoretical pieces it will explore postcolonialism’s commitment to questioning dominant narratives of knowledge, versions of history, forms of identity and attachment, and versions of modernity centered on the nation. It will also explore experiences of diaspora and migration. (B, H)
