Key Concepts in Post-Colonial Studies


As a subject, post-colonial studies stands at the intersection of debates about race, colonialism, gender, politics and language. In
the language of post-colonial studies, some words are new, others are familiar but charged with new significance. This volume provides an essential key to understanding the issues that characterize postcolonialism, explaining what it is, where it is encountered and why it is crucial in forging new cultural identities. It includes definitions of:
• diaspora
• Fanonism
• imperialism
• Manicheanism
• mimicry
• negritude
• orientalism
• settler-colony
• transculturation

This comprehensive glossary has extensive cross-referencing, suggestions for further reading at the end of each entry, a bibliography of essential writings in post-colonial studies and is presented in an easy-to-use A–Z format.
