Nervous Conditions/ First Paper (contcult)

Welcome to the postcolonialism unit. Monday we’ll discuss the first four chapters of Tsitsi Dangarembga‘s Nervous Conditions. Recall that the title of this book is from a phrase written by Jean-Paul Sartre in his introduction to Frantz Fanon‘s seminal Wretched of the Earth. You can read that introduction here.

Wednesday we’ll continue with NC, up to chapter 7.

Friday we’ll short for the book up to chapter 9.
