ENGL 8817 Contemporary Anglophone Novels from Africa and South Asia (Summer: 3 )
In this course we will read major contemporary novels from Africa (Nigeria, Somalia, Southern Africa) and South Asia (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) that engage directly with the experience of British Imperialism and contemporary globalization. Our concerns will be with the economic consequences of globalized political power and the ways in which creative writers and intellectuals in the developing world represent issues such as food security, environmental degradation, rapid industrialization and the onslaught of consumer values.
