LOND 933 - Colonialism’s Impact on the Shaping of English National Identity

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 6 Hours
Attribute: 3 HU, 3SS, CD

This course will critically examine the way in which the interaction between England and its colonial “peripheries” – the Caribbean and Africa, the Indian subcontinent and the Far East –ultimately helped shape national English identity. Students will explore the memories, myths, and histories underwriting dominant representations of English identity as well as those invoked by minority populations that work their way into, contest, or modify, standard narratives. We will explore greater London as a site in which English identity was formed and contested.
Instructor: A. Needham, S. Volk
