This course will cover a variety of literary texts that (a) shaped the British Empire’s worldview and created a British aesthetic to accommodate colonial expansion, and (b) challenged the presumptions and the very foundations of imperialism. Post-colonial theory (e.g. Edward Said, Gayatri Chekravorty Spivak, and Franz Fanon) will provide a framework for students’ exploration and analysis of literature. Readings may include Joseph Conrad, Jane Austen, E. M. Forster, Wole Soyinka, Salman Rushdie, and Latifa Al-Zayyat.
