ENGL 3360 - African Literatures & Cultures

This course examines how African authors represent African culture and experiences across time and place. Students will analyze texts by men and women from four broad geographic areas (Northern, West, East, and Southern) and several individual countries to see how specific historical, cultural, colonial, linguistic, and religious influences shape African literary expressions. Additionally, we will read appropriate works of Postcolonial theory and criticism and analyze how these theories can be applied to the primary texts for the course.

Prerequisites: ENGL 2050, ENGL 2230 and one ENGL 2100-level literature course, all with a grade of B or higher
