Colonial and Postcolonial Studies
This interdisciplinary programme offers students a cultural, literary, theoretical and historiographical foundation in the field of colonial and postcolonial studies. Taking an original, interdisciplinary approach, students study material from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and beyond. Working with world literature, film and historical sources, students explore major currents in cultural production and identity politics. Looking at some of the most decisive phenomena the modern world has witnessed, the course develops students' understanding of the complexities of the contemporary era, preparing them for a wide range of professional and intellectual future activities. Students are introduced to a range of authors, and have the opportunity to study works and critical texts which originated in languages other than English. Works are taught in English translation, with the possibility to read them in the original modern languages.
