講義概要 【副題】
Literature and the British Empire: The World of Chinua Achebe

【授業概要】
In this course we will read short stories by the Nigerian writer, Chinua Achebe

【到達目標】
This course will combine lecture and student-teacher discussion.
The purpose of the course is three-fold: to teach the students to read fiction more perceptively and reflectively, noting in particular the relationship between the text and the historic and cultural context which produced it; to raise in the students a greater awareness of and appreciation for the peoples, cultures, and countries of Africa; and to gain a deeper understanding of the consequences of European colonialism for both the colonizer and the colonized.

【授業計画】
1. Introduction and course outline
2. Africa and Europe: a colonial and postcolonial history
3. "Marriage is a Private Affair"
4. "Dead Men's Path"
5. "Chike's School Days"
6. "The Sacrificial Egg"
7. "The Madman"
