Postcolonial Studies

This programme offers a focus on the historical relationships of power, domination and practices of imperialism and colonialism in the modern period (late 19th century to the present) through the study of literature and culture. The core course introduces a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to the literature, film and media of these areas. A range of literary, filmic and theoretical texts from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Near and Middle East are included in the reading list. These address representations of colonialism and decolonisation, neo-colonialism, nationalism in postcolonial societies and diasporic experiences.
