ENG 7440 Postcolonialism (3 units)
This course considers “India” as a site of literary production within colonial and postcolonial discourse before and after Indian independence in 1947. A privileged site in diasporic Anglophone history, India was among the earliest nations to delink its history of English from colonial culture. As both material locus of postcolonial reality, and an imaginary site in language, “India” both constitutes and problematizes contexts of race, class and nation and the canons deriving from these.
