ENGH 256 - Anglophone Literature Post-1900: Mapping the Anglo-American Literary Tradition

4 credits
Through an examination of representative post-1900 texts from English-speaking nations of Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia, this course explores the dynamic relations among author, reader, theme, form, culture, and intertextuality. Topics include the decline of European colonialisms, the rise of post-colonial cultures, Cold War and post-Cold War politics, migration, urbanism, and transnational feminism. Writers may include Jean Rhys, Jamaica Kincaid, Rabindranath Tagore, Vikram Seth, Michael Ondaatje, Doris Lessing, and Ama Ata Aidoo. Students will also explore how these literatures interact with post-colonial cinemas. CLA-Breadth/Humanities
