EN3226 The Post-Colonial Novel: The Art of Resistance
Summer Reading List 2016-17
Course Tutor: Dr Mark Mathuray
In preparation for the first seminar, you should read Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and Achebe’s Things fall Apart. Compare their distinct depictions of African culture.
Also, attempt to provide definitions for the following terms: colonialism; postcolonialism; and neo-colonialism.
For a general introduction to the field, look at Ania Loomba’s Colonialism/Postcolonialism and Elleke Boehmer’s Colonial and Postcolonial Literature: Migrant Metaphors.
