The Postcolonial in the Global
- Course Number: ENGL 236
- Catalog Course Entry: ENGL 236
- Quarter: Spring 2018
THE POSTCOLONIAL IN THE GLOBAL
While the earliest iterations of postcolonial theory focused on textuality and subjectivity, postcolonial studies in the last four decades has expanded to the study of material life in the settler and the former post-colonies. Research questions and analytics, paradigms and methodologies arising from postcolonial studies now provide a critical optic on contemporary globalization. This course examines recent scholarly contributions that examine institutions (of the cinema), infrastructures (of cities), networks (of music) and practices (of writing/speech). We will read a selection of seminal postcolonial theoretical texts (books and landmark essays) alongside four exemplary treatments of globalization.
Students are expected to read all the texts in “Postcolonial Theory,” including selections in the Course Reader, and at least one example from “Postcolonial Studies.”
