ENGL 318 - Black British Literature and Culture

2022-2023 Catalog Year

Credit(s): 4
Lecture: 4
Non-Lecture: 0
A study of works by representative Black British writers from the mid-20th century onward in their cultural and social contexts. The course will cover a variety of genres, focusing theoretically on the development of Black British literature, and being framed through these initial questions: Who is English in that nation’s imaginary? Who is not? Does Englishness mean WHITE only, as Catherine Hall has so persuasively demonstrated by retelling some of that country’s history in relation to its colonies? Black British Literature has historically coincided not only with the questioning of what constitutes a British identity but with critical articulations of the issues of full citizenship and belonging.

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 203 .
