Postcolonial Encounters

This Postcolonial Encounters series explores the impact of colonial legacies, precolonial traditions and current global and imperial forces on the everyday lives of citizens. Arising from the analysis of decolonization and recolonization, the series opens out a significant space in a growing interdisciplinary literature. The convergence of interest is very broad, from anthropology, cultural studies, and social history to comparative literature, development, sociology, law and political theory. No single theoretical orientation provides the dominant thrust. Instead the series responds to the challenge of a commitment to empirical, in-depth research as the motivation for critical theory
