ENG 379. Literature and Empire

The course is designed as an overview of writings from regions of the world that were formerly colonized by Britain. It examines the colonial, nationalist and postcolonial shaping of individual and collective identities through literature; the intersections of race, gender, and nation; and the crafting of a new idiom in English in response to both political and literary histories; the significance of choices of genre and form.
