Modern South Asia and Africa have been shaped by their history of colonization. What is it like to live in places once dominated by foreigners, then reshaped by nationalisms and various injustices intensified by globalization? In this course, we?ll read literary depictions that illuminate the lives, dreams, joys, hates, and failures of individuals and groups in these places, exploring both ordinary life and extraordinary experiences created by dispossession, political tyranny, civil war, and environmental trauma.
