Postmodern and Postcolonial Intersections

This volume deals with two of the most vital and complex terms in the world today: post-modernism and post-colonialism. It explores the confluences and continuities between both movements in terms of their projects and their conceptions of such notions as history, subjectivity and representation. One way of comparing the postmodern and the postcolonial necessarily entails looking at their discourses and examining their attitudes toward the validity of earlier legitimating (master) narratives of Eurocentric imperialism. Equally important, the merit of such a comparison consists in shedding light on the relation between East and West, and exploring the ways in which such a relation is presented and re-represented in multiple forms in postmodern and postcolonial writings and re-writings of literary and cultural works from the past. Grounded in contemporary post-modern and post-colonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the articles brought together here address, among a myriad of other issues, the implication of the umbrella term ‘post-modernism’ in a network of social, cultural, political and existential inter-relations. Also highlighted is the affinity between post-modernism and post-colonialism, with both being generally conceived as phenomena, or events, which provide a framework for rejecting established norms of rationality and questioning subsequent modes of representation embodied by Western discourses on modernity.
