This colloquium engages with Simon Gikandi’s influential essay Globalisation and the Claims of Post-Coloniality (2001) to ask … what is ‘global literature’ … what is its relation to material relations of inequality and exploitation between regions of the world … how does it reproduce or conceal the legacy of colonialism … does it show that the nation-state has been transcended … to what extent is it still dependent on the specific canon of English literature?
Dr Grace A. Musila is part of the Department of English, Stellenbosch University and a Cardiff International Visiting Fellow (2017).
Part of a series on Law, Resistance and the Post-Colonial State hosted by Centre for Law and Global Justice, Centre for Cultural and Critical Theory and the School of Modern Languages.
This event is 1 - 3 pm 23 May in room 1.28 of Cardiff Law School. This event is free but please book your ticket via eventbrite.
