About the course:

This course investigates the ways in which literature from Britain's ex-colonies has reflected and registered the enduring consequences of the imperial project. Moving beyond a narrow concern with national independence, it considers postcolonial writing in relation to issues such as climate change, economic crises, migration and democratic struggles, and the rise of reactionary populisms.
