Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Britain was the largest colonial empire in recent history and its legacy has shaped the contemporary world in spreading British culture, language, social and political systems throughout the world. This class introduces students to the large range of cultures of the Commonwealth. We will study the English legacy of the Indian subcontinent, Southern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, the Caribbean and Canada. We will look at the impact of British conquest and management on the native cultures and customs of these countries through the eyes of the local peoples. This includes white settlers of Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the black majority in South Africa, the ethnic diaspora of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and many indigenous peoples. Since independence in the 1950s, these indigenous, minority and marginalised voices have recounted their experiences of colonisation and of their local societies, past and present. We study these cultural expressions, which is often called the postcolonial, through song, poetry, theatre, dance, painting, TV documentaries, commercials, advertisements, and film.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

One final examination consisting of short answers and a short analytical essay.
