ENGL 4446 Empire and The Everyday (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The British Empire was once the world’s foremost military, economic, and political power: it was “the empire on which the sun never sets.” Despite its colossal scale, life in the British Empire often looked quite different to those who inhabited its daily rhythms and felt smaller, though no less significant, reverberations of its power. In this course, we will explore how the empire exerted its influence on the everyday lives of its citizens, as well as how they sought creative ways of resisting it. Writers may include: E.M Forster, Leonard Woolf, Chinua Achebe, and Flora Annie Steel.
