  • The Presence of the Past in the Novels of Toni Morrisonby Stefanie Mueller

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 48.74

    Hauptbeschreibung After decades of research into the role of memory, trauma, and historiography in her work, to say that Toni Morrison's novels deal with the presence of the past may seem like a truism. But the complexity of Morrison's vision originates in her understanding of the nature of this past as both individual and collective. This study... more...

  • Romantic Literature and Postcolonial Studiesby Elizabeth A. Bohls

    Edinburgh University Press 2013; US$ 112.00

It highlights... more...

  • Prose of the Worldby Saikat Majumdar

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 39.99

    Everyday life in the far outposts of empire can be static, empty of the excitement of progress. A pervading sense of banality and boredom are, therefore, common elements of the daily experience for people living on the colonial periphery. Saikat Majumdar suggests that this impoverished affective experience of colonial modernity significantly shapes... more...

  • Postcolonial Audiencesby Bethan Benwell; James Procter; Gemma Robinson

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 128.00

    Without readers and audiences, viewers and consumers, the postcolonial would be literally unthinkable. And yet, postcolonial critics have historically neglected the modes of reception and consumption that make up the politics, and pleasures of meaning-making during and after empire. Thus, while recent criticism and theory has made large claims for... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 95.00

  • The Event of Postcolonial Shameby Timothy Bewes

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 35.00

    In a postcolonial world, where structures of power, hierarchy, and domination operate on a global scale, writers face an ethical and aesthetic dilemma: How to write without contributing to the inscription of inequality? How to process the colonial past without reverting to a pathology of self-disgust? Can literature ever be free of the shame of the... more...
