ENGL 377 - Migrants and Postcolonial Novels

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
Central to the postcolonial novel is the global experience of migration with a spectrum of identity markers, such as, class, race, gender, and sexuality. The novels track distinct migratory trends. The Asian and Caribbean migration to Britain will be explored through Hanief Kureishi’s The Black Album (1995), Zadie Smith’s White Teeth (2000), and Andrea Levy’s Small Island (2004). Also we will read V. S. Naipaul’s A Bend in the River (1979) - a novel about migrant lives caught up in postcolonial violence, and Amitav Ghosh’s Gun Island (2019) that explore climate migrants in continental Europe.
