This course explores English-language literature from nations that came into existence during and soon after the era of European colonialism, for example: Australia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, India, Pakistan, and Caribbean nations. Selected texts may reflect long-standing civilizations and ancient cultures, for instance, of Africa and South Asia. As well, indigenous cultures may be represented in works examined. Through literary works, students encounter the rich legacies and distinctive realities of these seemingly "foreign" societies, as well as the profound similarities and interconnections of these cultures with our own. 06-01-2020-01-04-2020 Lecture Monday, Wednesday 01:30PM - 02:45PM, SDU Main Bldg, Room 113
