Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The aim of this project is to understand different positions of Nigerian identities, which is done through a postcolonial perspective. This perspective will be supported by the discourses of Bhabha, Said, Hall, and Fanon to understand postcolonial identity and conflicts. The discourse theory support the project with an understanding of everything being positioned, and helps us to locate our own position toward knowledge production. From this, we have reached an understanding of how stereotyping, culture and language are essential concepts when defining Nigerian identity.
