Over the last two decades, postcolonial theory has had a significant impact on how literary critics, anthropologists, and historians (among others) analyze colonial relationships and the political and cultural legacies of colonialism. This course introduces students to some of the key concepts, methods, and debates in the field of postcolonial studies and explores their relevance to Asian Studies. Topics include: Orientalism and its critiques, anti-colonial nationalisms, nation and gender, subalternity and representation, colonial and postcolonial modernity, globalization and diaspora, the political and intellectual stakes and contexts of postcolonial studies.
