Critical Edition of a Postcolonial Novel 

About Us


We - students in the Master's program of English-Speaking cultures at the University of Bremen - are venturing into producing a critical edition of a postcolonial novel, which is an activity at the interface between research, studying, and learning skills for later professional careers in academia and beyond. We are discussing the novels Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and Oil on Water by Helon Habila and producing a critical edition of Oil on Water. This includes writing articles on the historical background, on the cultural, social, environmental, and political context as well as critical analytical articles.
