Book description

The Postcolonial World presents an overview of the field and extends critical debate in exciting new directions. It provides an important and timely reappraisal of postcolonialism as an aesthetic, political, and historical movement, and of postcolonial studies as a multidisciplinary, transcultural field. Essays map the terrain of the postcolonial as a global phenomenon at the intersection of several disciplinary inquiries. Framed by an introductory chapter and a concluding essay, the eight sections examine:

  • Affective, Postcolonial Histories
  • Postcolonial Desires
  • Religious Imaginings
  • Postcolonial Geographies and Spatial Practices
  • Human Rights and Postcolonial Conflicts
  • Postcolonial Cultures and Digital Humanities
  • Ecocritical Inquiries in Postcolonial Studies
  • Postcolonialism versus Neoliberalism

The Postcolonial World looks afresh at re-emerging conditions of postcoloniality in the twenty-first century and draws on a wide range of representational strategies, cultural practices, material forms, and affective affiliations. The volume is an essential reading for scholars and students of postcolonialism.
