Tutor description

Professor Paul Fry: Well, post-colonial studies is really by far the most varied and eclectic of the identity fields that we're passing in review in this portion of the course: eclectic really of necessity, of course, because of the immense variety of the materials covered, but also because of swirling issues and controversies within post-colonial studies or "po-co," as it's affectionately known, which kind of pose a number of questions from the side that keep things lively, to say the least.

ENGL-300: INTRODUCTION TO THEORY OF LITERATURELecture 22 - Post-Colonial Criticism [April 9, 2009]Chapter 1. Problems With the Term "Post-Colonial" [00:00:00]Professor Paul Fry:Well, post-colonial studies is really by far the most varied and eclectic of the identity fields that we're passing in review in this portion of the course: eclectic really of necessity, of course, because of the immense variety of the materials covered, but also because of swirling issues and controversies within post-colonial studies or "po-co," as it's affectionately known, which kind of pose a number of questions from the side that keep things lively, to say the least. We are taking up only one strand, one developmental strand, in post-colonial studies today, a kind of progression from the work of Said to the work of Bhabha which is relatively easily mapped, simply in terms of the intellectual agendas of each of them, but there's a great deal else going on.I suppose I should just mention in passing certain topics that we won't be discussing, at least except possibly in passing and that, however, you might really be interested in considering if you do have an interest in this field. The first issue, of course, is who says "post-colonial," and who says that we're necessarily out of colonialism? Just because the local viceroy packs up and goes home doesn't necessarily mean that things change all that significantly in the so-called postcolonial setting, and it needs to be taken into account,
