Description

What do we mean by “decolonization,” really? Is it a political or economic process? Is it a psychological (or even spiritual) one? In this class, we will read works from a range of colonial and postcolonial lifeworlds: some written in the midst of violent revolution, some anticipating long struggles for independence, some simply asking what it means (or might mean, or has meant) to be other than colonial.

Please write with any questions/concerns to dunsker@berkeley.edu.
