This module introduces students to a range of writing and contemporary cultural production from apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa, material engaging with the legacies of a long period of inter- and intra-racial oppression and violence, and negotiating the complexities of gendered, ethnic, racial, and linguistic identity in a heterogeneous postcolonial society. Students will, under expert supervision, engage with this material¿s historical and political circumstances, and with methodological and theoretical frameworks for studying postcolonial cultural production in a fascinating regional context.
