Post Colonial Literature: In Ghana

2024 Trip Cancelled.

This course serves as an introduction to postcolonial literature, focusing on the nation of Ghana. Broadly defined, postcolonial literature is the literature produced by individuals from formerly colonized nations (e.g. Ghana), and concerned with the myriad of effects of that colonization. Since there is no way to assemble into a single course all that is considered postcolonial literature, this course focuses on a single—yet, still rather large—question: The question of history. Reading various texts (e.g., films, novels, short stories), we will approach the question of history from three points--cultural history, national history, and personal history--in an effort to understand some of the ways postcolonial authors have grappled with the effects of colonization.
