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,The Postcolonial World_revised.jpg and historical movement, and of postcolonial studies as a multidisciplinary, transcultural field.

  • Religious Imaginings
  • Postcolonial Geographies and Spatial Practices
  • Human Rights and Postcolonial Conflicts
  • Postcolonial Cultures and Digital Humanities
