By way of literary and historical texts, we will consider the differences and overlaps in artistic and theoretical concerns that mark the shift from
postcolonial to globalization studies. Is “postcolonial” superseded by “globalization”, or does the latter approach extend and enrich the critical
impetus of the former? Discussions will center on recent fiction, cultural theory and economic history.
