English Language Fellow Katy Lynn McAlary met with university instructors and professors to show them new strategies in teaching English literature. McAlary gave a presentation about post-colonial literature, and the best ways to introduce related topics in the classroom.

Since post-colonialism had a large impact on Bangladesh, this training was very relevant for teachers. They were happy to gain new perspectives emerging in literature, and to start discussions among fellow academics regarding topics in linguistics. One teacher remarked that he “never thought of looking at a literary classic within the framework of a colonialist lens” and that it was new and innovative.
