Post-colonial Studies: The Key Concepts

Framsida
Post-colonial studies stands at the intersection of debates about race, colonialism, gender, politics and language. In the language of post-colonial studies, some words are new while others are familiar but charged with a new significance. This volume provides an essential key to understanding the issues that characterize post-colonialism, explaining what it is, where it is encountered and why it is crucial in forging new cultural identities, Among the subjects defined and discussed are: disapora, Fanonism, Imperialism, Manicheanism, mimicry, negritude, Orientalism, settler-colony, and transculturation.
This comprehensive glossary has extensive cross-referencing, each entry is supplemented by suggestions for further reading, and there is a comprehensive bibliography of essential writings in post-colonial studies.
