New classes

I finally have my new classes for the spring semester ready.

One, which I’ll be teaching at the Graduate Center, focuses on racial formation in modern Britain.  The course begins with Shakespeare’s representation of the New World in The Tempest, continues with texts written during the eras of abolition and high imperialism in the 19th century, and closes by looking at racial formation in post-1945 Britain.  Here’s the syllabus.

The other class, for undergraduates, focuses on imperial and anti-colonial texts of the 19th and 20th centuries.  The idea here is to give these students some perspective on current U.S. imperial culture using the lens of preceding representations of empire, as well as texts that represented the multifarious damages wrought by imperialism.  Here’s the SYLLABUS for this course.
