ENGL 230 - Post-Colonial Literature


Persons who have cultural ties to countries formerly ruled by colonial powers write post-colonial literature. This poetry, drama, and prose often describes how such persons are affected by both the legacy of colonialism, the systematic occupation and domination of one country by another, and decolonization, the process by which colonies become self-governing or independent. In addition, this literature often explores strategies former colonies have used to survive in a world dominated by global capitalism. This course examines post-colonial literature written in four regions of the world: Latin America and the Caribbean, Australia and Oceania, Asia, and Africa and the Middle East.
