The migration of Asians and Africans to Britain in the 1960s generated changes in society and culture and triggered discourses which fall under the general heading of Postcolonialism. While Postcolonialism is widely studied both in terms of methodology and in relation to literary productions, the visual arts have received scant attention in this context. This module will explore the causes for this lack of attention and will examine a wide variety of media from the 1960s to the present day (eg works by Mona Hatoum, Chris Ofili, Anwar Shemza). It will also consider various discourses in Postcolonialism (Homi K Bhabha, Edward Said and Gayatri Spivak) and explore its major themes (diaspora, race, nationhood and belonging, imperialism, hybridity) as well as examining canonical postcolonial literature (Salman Rushdie, V S Naipaul), in order to create a dialogue with the works of art in question. The module will also examine the visual productions of both historical and present cultures of colonialism and neo-colonial conflicts such as Nazi Germany, Germany after reunification, and the Iraq war. This module emphasises primary source materials, both textual and visual.
