This is the course blog for Pranav Jani’s English 4583 class, Special Topics in World Literature. The blog is intended to give a platform to students’ thoughts about postcolonial/world literature and culture and other related subjects. All students in each class are signed on as authors and remain such even after they leave the class. The idea is to encourage ongoing engagement with the issues beyond the classroom (yes, I’m utopian).
If you are just visiting us, welcome! The blog is public precisely in order to invite those who are interested in the topics to participate and contribute. We ask only that you remain constructive and encouraging (and comments are moderated to ensure this). Also, please give the authors credit in case you cite their ideas directly.
UPDATE: AUGUST 2013
Another class of English 4583 is starting tomorrow, and new authors will be added. Let’s see how this works out!
