University of Manchester
English Studies (Postcolonial Literatures and Cultures)
The course stresses the plurality of materials and perspectives as course options touch on disciplines as varied as cultural theory, literary history, national and regional literature, gender and sexuality as well as representation itself; the decision to use the plural forms of the key terms literature and culture reflects the course's intention to signal the discursive and ideological diversity and openness of the debates to which students are introduced.
