HMSC 134 SC - Foundations in Postcolonial Theory


This course provides an in-depth survey of key foundational texts in postcolonial theory. Students will learn the main tenets of theoretical paradigms advanced by postcolonial theorists and attain proficiency with the terminology of the field (ex. hegemony, subalternity, orientalism, hybridity, contamination, conviviality, etc.) emerging across geographies and disciplines from the 1950s to the present. The course will problematize the relationship of postcolonial theory as a field to discourses in feminist theory, globalization and transnationalism and application of the theories to real-world situations.

Course Credit: 1.0
