Inhoud
This course is for students in the MA Gender Studies, GEMMA, MA Applied Musicology, MA Arts and Society and MA Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Dramaturgy; students from other MA programmes should check with the course coordinator before enrolling. Only this way participation can be granted. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator by yourself.

This course addresses the main theoretical, historical, cultural, and political transitions that shape our postcolonial world as well as Postcolonial Studies as a field.
Postcolonial transitions take place through both material and discursive practices and emerge at the intersection of cultural formations, geopolitical reconfigurations, and socio-economic changes. The course will illustrate and analyze the “postcolonial condition” we live in through the close reading of theoretical texts and the discussion of global and local political debates. In so doing, the course offers an overview of the canon of postcolonial theory - theories of (neo)Orientalism, the project of Subaltern Studies, the conceptualizations of hybridity and colonial mimesis, and the relation between postcolonial and decolonial approaches, among others - while at the same time locating and applying these theories and concepts to particular postcolonial locations and histories. The course places particular emphasis on the intersections between Postcolonial Studies and Gender/Queer Studies, foregrounding the role played by sexual politics in colonial domination and postcolonial transitions.
