Novels written in English from Asia and Africa during the mid-twentieth century to the present day. We will discuss shifts from realism to magical realism and back; domestic, historical and speculative fiction; narratives of the rise of new nations and nationalism; experiences of exile and migration; the 'global' city; transnational cultural exchanges and networks that dismantle assumed civilizational boundaries. Newer novels offer opportunities to understand how literary narratives grasp ecological destruction, animal extinction, and human responsibility.
