Post-colonial literatures expanding the canon
Madsen, Deborah L1999
Articles
Subject: This collection of essays on the field of post-colonial studies, offers perspectives on texts from both sides of the Atlantic, challenging the emerging consensus on post-colonial literatures in the process. The contributors discuss a diversity of related topics, from case studies of specific authors to theoretical investigations of such fundamental questions as the role of literary study within multicultural societies. At the heart of the book is the endeavour to analyze in depth the diversity of multicultural, post-colonial ideas crystallising around concepts of race, gender, hybridity, culture, minority status, the legacy of colonialism and the politics of race and gender.
