Description

Rerouting the Postcolonial re-orientates and re-invigorates the field of Postcolonial Studies in line with recent trends in critical theory, reconnecting the ethical and political with the aesthetic aspect of postcolonial culture.

Bringing together a group of leading and emerging intellectuals, this volume charts and challenges the diversity of postcolonial studies, including sections on:

  • new directions and growth areas from performance and autobiography to diaspora and transnationalism
  • new subject matters such as sexuality and queer theory, ecocriticism and discussions of areas of Europe as postcolonial spaces
  • new theoretical directions such as globalization, fundamentalism, terror and theories of ‘affect’.

Each section incorporates a clear, concise introduction, making this volume both an accessible overview of the field whilst also an invigorating collection of scholarship for the new millennium.
