Text, Theory, Space is a landmark in post-colonial criticism and theory. Focusing on two white settler societies, South Africa and Australia, the contributors investigate the meaning of 'the South' as an aesthetic, political, geographical and cultural space.
Drawing upon a wide range of disciplines which include literature, history, urban and cultural geography, politics and anthropology, the contributors examine crucial issues including:
* defining what 'the South' encompasses
* investigating ideas of space, history, land and landscape
* claiming, naming and possessing land
* national and personal boundaries
* questions of race, gender and nationalism
