Abstract [en]

Tsitsi Dangarembga’s novel Nervous Conditions problematises the notion of consumption by making connections between ideologies and values and physical food substances, and places them within greater systems of gender and cultural oppression in a postcolonial context. By examining the ways in which unquestioning or blind, or complete refusal of, consumption affects different aspects of health in the novel, students in the EFL classroom are given a chance to develop and apply critical thinking skills to achieve an awareness for the importance of balance when maintaining healthy relationships not only to ideologies and values, but to food and mental well-being as well.
