Monica Mirza's curator insight, March 22, 2013 12:23 PM

Onlist S. Bonfils (a colleague) has just reminded us of "Things fall apart" as its Nigerian author -Chinua Achebe- has died (the novel's considered the archetype of the African novel in English) .

Should you plan to deal with the novel, its author and/or dwell in the African literature domain... let me suggest you ' www.postcolonialweb.org ', a website I discovered a while ago. It covers"Contemporary postcolonial and postimperial literature in English" and contains loads of relevant analyses and information to help you study them with your students.

Hope it'll be of some use :-)

By drawing the students' attention to changing literature throughout time, they will look into how the first authors recorded works and how technology has changed how people produce, publish and distribute literary works now and in the future.
