EGST 0301 - Seminar in Postcolonial Studies

Credits: 3

Postcolonial Studies, in a very general sense, is the study of the interactions between European nations and the societies they colonized in the modern period. This seminar will explore the ways that a postcolonial gaze or a postcolonial experience is constructed and bifurcated by new knowledges and distributions of power. It will include multidisciplinary approaches including but not limited to – postcolonial film studies; postcolonial literary approaches and expressions, and postcolonial approaches in a variety of fields. Topics may vary by semester. Students may take this course more than once for different topics to fulfill the Transnational elective for the EGST major.
