Your assignment will be on the topic of postcolonialism, which we had
discussed in class. Here is a video of Edward Said speaking about his
book Orientalism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
Watch the video and summarize its main arguments on 3-4 standard pages
(1 page = 1800 characters).
If you want, you can consult the book as well (here,
it is not obligatory in order to write the essay. The video should be
your primary reference and source.
Please be careful not to transcribe the interview – no direct copy/paste
from what you hear; you have to identify the main themes and describe
them in your own words.
When you are ready, please send the essay to this e-mail + a .pdf of the
individual protocol for the course.
