(Only do the application part)Application:
Locate two (2)
21st-century texts that you find promising for postcolonial analysis, and
perform a succinct analysis of each. Remember that a text is any cultural artifact
– a short story, a novel, a photo, a media clip, music, sculpture, etc. What
themes emerge, and what are the messages about those themes? How does the
theory illuminate your experience of the text? The goal of this section is to
take the theory beyond the texts to identify how the concepts apply to the
world around us.NO title page3 pages (one per each source and a ref page)APA & in text citation

ENGL2310: Final Project Assignment
due Wednesday, April 24th – 23:59 CST
PoCo Contempo
UIW Online World Lit Studies
For this final project, you will be contributing to the topic of postcolonial analysis
in the 21st century in an informal presentation, basically a cross between a powerpoint
and a blog. You can be creative with this final project, making it into a storyboard, a
power point, a whimsical blog, an essay. One former student chose to insert video
clips into her presentation. Basically, the sky is the limit in how you want to put this
together – you can insert all sorts of media, outside sources, anything, really, that you
feel will help illustrate (and make fun, hopefully) this final project as long as the three
parts below are included. There are not formal guidelines for this final project other
than the required things to include (below), so I suggest that you really get creative
and tie in all sorts of media/texts/outside quotes/personal stories – everything but
the kitchen sink that you feel will bring your study of postcolonial theory into focus
and entertain your fellow students.
Initially, “postcolonial” was applied to literature originating in the waves of
independence from previously colonized regions of the world (1950s-1990s).
Nonetheless, the effects of those colonial relationships are still ongoing. In this final
project, please collect examples of current texts (1990-2018) that could benefit from
postcolonial analysis. These might be instances of film, television, advertising (i.e.
branding), social media, music, video games, and physical spaces, as well as more
traditional forms of literature – be creative and have fun with this assignment, but be
sure to include the requirements below.
There are three parts that you must include in your Final Project
submission:
Summary:
Provide a summary of postcolonial theory. What is it? What is it concerned with?
How is it a tool for looking at the world today? Why is it important? Consider when
and how it emerged as a school of thought and give concrete examples to anchor
your explanations. The goal of this section is to demonstrate your command of the
theory and reflect on its intended purpose.
Reflection:
Choose the postcolonial theme that has most resonated with you this term. Discuss
yourself and your experiences in relation to that theme. Be specific, taking your
reflection beyond general observations. The goal of this section is to demonstrate in
what ways the theories have been relevant to your life or have caused you to reflect
on your experiences.
Application:
Locate two (2) 21st-century texts that you find promising for postcolonial analysis,
and perform a succinct analysis of each. Remember that a text is any cultural
artifact – a short story, a novel, a photo, a a media clip, music, sculpture, etc. What
themes emerge, and what are the messages about those themes? How does the
theory illuminate your experience of the text? The goal of this section is to take the
theory beyond the texts to identify how the concepts apply to the world around us.
