Contact: Dr Andrew Van Der Vlies
"This module introduces students to themes and practices in the study of African literary and cultural production, with an emphasis on post-1945 anglophone fiction and prose non-fiction, poetry, pamphlets and ephemera, and film - from or about the continent (or its diasporas). Material is considered in the context of the history and cultural politics of Africa and the field of postcolonial studies. Students are encouraged to apply a range of theoretical and methodological frameworks - including concern with their material, ideological, textual and institutional mediation(s) and effects."
