Abstract

This book begins by introducing key issues involved in the study of postcolonial literature including old and new diasporas, postcolonial nationalisms, indigenous identities and politics and globalization. Close readings of commonly studied texts from and about Africa, Australia, Canada, Palestine and South Asian diasporas highlight critical questions and ways of reading postcolonial texts. A chapter on afterlives and adaptations explores a range of wider cultural texts including film, non-fiction and art. The final section introduces key critical interpretations from different perspectives including diaspora theory, feminism, indigeneity and the postcolony. 'Review, Reading and Research' sections give suggestions for further reading, discussion and research. Introducing texts, contexts and criticism, this is a lively and up-to-date resource for anyone studying postcolonial literatures.
