Example text

You can’t go on all the time being whatever’s necessary. You’ve got to have some conviction, and I’m convinced I don’t want to be anyone’s underdog. It’s not right for anyone to be that. But once you get used to it, well, it just seems natural and you just carry on. And that’s the end of you. You’re trapped. They control everything you do (Dangarembga 119). The above passage is taken from a conversation between Tambu and Nyasha. Nyasha proves to be a character of resistance who resists the patriarchal ideologies of her father Babamukuru, an English educated, financially successful Zimbabwean.

They will begin where they are, in North America, and read a chapter from the contemporary work Pushing the Bear: After the Trail of Tears by Diane Glancy. They will then “travel” back in time and to South America to read a poem by Pablo Neruda. Students will cross the sea and read an activist poem, “Aboriginal Charter of Rights,” by the Australian writer Oodgeroo Noonuccal. ” The unit will next take them from India to Africa where students will examine Tsitsi Dangarembga’s Nervous Conditions.

At the end of the unit, students will have six artifacts potentially composed in a variety of genres. Purpose The purpose of the Geographic Tour Assignment: The Voice of the ‘Other’ is for students to gain exposure to a variety of texts voiced from a colonized ‘other’ living in different cultures and time periods. The texts all connect with imperialism and students will have the opportunity to read a voice that for many years was silenced by colonial rule. Postcolonial studies emphasize how the ‘other’ or the colonized, in an imperial context, represent themselves and are represented in empire texts.
