Postcolonial Literatures 1, 7.5 credits

About this education

The course aims to familiarize students with major issues and debates in the field of postcolonial studies. The texts we discuss move all in the problematic (and problematized) zone between local culture and global concerns. Our focus will be on concepts such as hybridity, (colonial) mimicry, nation/nationalism, cultural translation and the vexed relation between tradition and (post)modernity.
