ENGL 3570 - Colonized and Colonizer: African and European Writers in Conversation

(crosslisted) ASRC 3570  
(CA-AS, SCD-AS)      
Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

M. Ngugi.

If the lion would tell its story, it would be vastly different from that told from the hunter’s perspective. In this course, we will read texts where European and African authors have been in direct conversation, with the hope of developing a deeper understanding of how both the colonizer and colonized understood colonization and resistance – and the contradictions inherent in each. Looking at pairs of writers, such as Mannoni and Fanon, and Achebe and Conrad, we shall try to paint a picture that engages the voices and vulnerabilities of both lion and hunter.
