This is a shortened, online version of Reading Colonialism and its Aftermath A with only six sessions and six books, meeting virtually between September and the end of November.
We will read books written from the points of view of the colonized, rather than of the colonizers, to explore colonial projects of Europeans and their descendants in West, East and Southern Africa, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and Canada.
The books are:
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M G Vassanji
Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dangarembga
The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Assembly by Natasha Brown
Five Little Indians by Michelle Good
Each participant will select one of the readings to present to the group. Everyone is expected to do all the reading and be prepared to participate in the group discussion.
