An introduction to creative writing and performance in English from countries formerly colonised by Britain. The course explores recent cultural productions including literature, film and popular culture, within the context of local histories, politics and cultural patterns, and their relations and reactions to colonial and neo-colonial forces. Students will also be introduced to recent theoretical approaches to understanding postcoloniality, and will gain a better insight into how these issues relate to Australia's own history of colonialism. The countries or regions to be examined in some depth may vary from year to year; the conception of the unit will not, however, be affected by such variations.
One 1,500 word essay and either a final two-hour examination or a 2,500-word essay.
