What are your opinions on the gender roles in the play Anowa? What about the power struggles? What are your thoughts on how characters relate to these aspects? Just read the play and would love to compare thoughts as I am unsure of my own interpretation.

I'm a undergrad English major and I am going to be teaching at a Great Books camp at Stanford this summer. I'm planning on teaching a class on postcolonial literature. Each session is only a week, so time seems vital. What texts do people recommend that can be looked at in an abridged class? My current ideas are short stories by Assia Djebar, Achebe, Ama Ata Aidoo, & Osama Alomar. I also was thinking poetry by Tarfia Faizullah, Ocean Vuong, Derek Walcott, and maybe an excerpt from A Brief History of Seven Killing which takes a look at Cold War Jamaica. I'd like to hear thoughts & other ideas.

2012.02.15 06:55 goddamnhivemind [REQUEST] "Besides, the pathways of history are littered with the bones of those who dared doubt progress." - Ama Ata Aidoo

I don't really know what would be a cool image to go with this. At first I was thinking of a sort of desert scene with a skull of an animal or something sticking out of the sand slightly, but I don't know. Maybe a picture commenting on some sort of technological "advancement" that hasn't had the desired effect. The quotation is from Aidoo's prose-poetry work "Our Sister Killjoy".
