About the course:

This course focuses on the historical and theoretical relationship between empire and literary production. We examine selected landmark literary works and movements as representations of colonial relations of race, gender, and class; as interventions in ethical and political debates over the ethics and future of imperialism; and as milestones of emergent colonial-national traditions. We explore the complexity of writing on empire (propaganda, memoir, satire, fantasy) in relation to ongoing theoretical debates over the fundamental relationship between culture and imperialism.
