On Post-Colonial Futures: Transformations of a Colonial Culture
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIn this groundbreaking work, Bill Ashcroft extends the arguments posed in The Empire Writes Back to investigate the transformative effects of postcolonial resistance and the continuing relevance of colonial struggle. He demonstrates the remarkable capacity for change and adaptation emanating from postcolonial cultures both in everyday life and in the intellectual spheres of literature, history and philosophy. The transformations of postcolonial literary study have not been limited to a simple rewriting of the canon but have also affected the ways in which all literature can be read and have led to a more profound understanding of the network of cultural practices that influence creative writing.
PortraitBill Ashcroft is Associate Professor in the Department of English, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
