The course focuses on readings of texts exemplifying multicultural Britain and their re-narration of post-colonial
experiences of exile and otherness. A brief excursion into the problematics of contemporary theoretical
approaches will be followed by analyses of poems and novels by contemporary writers of Afro-Caribbean, African
and Asian origin settled in and writing from Britain. Attention will be paid especially to the ways in which this body
of writing can expand our understanding of the complex negotiations of identity: the possible shifts in identity that
occur in relation to migration, the diasporic experience and the workings of the politics of inclusion and exclusion
that erase and inscribe difference. Further issues for discussion and analysis include the role of language, memory
and history, family and home, gender construction, oral and literary traditions. Discussions of primary texts will be
supplemented by theoretical and critical readings exemplifying the range of contemporary (post-colonial)
