CORE 003 SC - Postcolonial Anxieties: Unpacking Europe/Unyoking Africa


Through the study of English/Anglophone literature, this course pursues the postcolonial contention that Europe & Africa are philosophical, political and economic inventions. Textually, postcolonial critics as well as writers have sought to pierce the veneer of these imaginary constructions in order to demonstrate how Europe has been constructed through, and sometimes by, its antithesis, while Africa's ideological invention (through Europe) has fallen apart with the rise of postcolonial nation-states within the African continent. This course thus examines, through juxtaposed pairings of colonial and postcolonial texts, how the former destabilize this yoking and explores the cultural, political, and social "anxieties" such deconstruction creates.

Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Every year-3 years
