ENGL 4840 - History and Literature of the British Empire, 1850-Present (3)


Introduces students to some of the major social, cultural, and political developments associated with the British Empire from 1850 to the present and asks them to think critically and analytically about the relationships between these developments. Through lecture, film, and discussion of literature and other primary sources of the period, the course explores the impact of Empire on both the British and the societies under their control. Also focuses on the challenges of developing post-colonial cultures and identities in the aftermath of foreign rule.
