OFFERINGS

DESCRIPTION
This unit examines the ways in which postcolonial writers represent connections between traditional humanist concerns - for example, race and gender - and the 'natural' environment. Through a detailed analysis of selected works from Africa, India, Canada, the Caribbean and Australia, we will explore how writers from both the settler colonies and the former colonies of occupation express their sometimes similar (and often divergent) views on land, animals and humans. A secondary focus of the course will be the importance of the use of specifically literary techniques in re-creating the environmental past and imagining possible futures.

WEIGHT: 12.5%

ASSESSMENT: 5,000-word essay

TEACHING PATTERN: 27 contact hours

STAFF: TBA
