More about the book
About the book
Post-colonial studies is one of the youngest, most dynamic, and most fascinating, disciplines within the general field of literature and culture. In this volume, an international body of scholars addresses the multiplicity of issues concerning the presentation to students of post-colonial literature.
The collection focuses upon specific strategies for teaching post-colonial literature within particular political environments. The contributors offer specific course outlines covering the literature of a number of post-colonial regions, as well as articles on teaching post-colonialism.
