Since the publication of Edward Said's Orientalism (1979) and the onset of the culture wars, history wars, and battles of identity politics at the end of the twentieth century, postcolonialism has ballooned as an academic field of study and as a cultural field of struggle. While many of the cultural debates incited by postcolonialism as an academic field and cultural practice are complex, this course introduces several key issues related to approachable texts: place, race, home, nation, culture, story, and history. This broad approach to the field will enable students to enter these debates on their own, drawing from and contributing to the subject's focus on central concerns of postcolonialism as they are related to colonial and postcolonial historical texts, contexts, and literary theory.
