Postcolonial Cultures by Simon Featherstone
Book DescriptionA clearly-written introduction to the study of postcolonial cultures which broadens the reach of postcolonial theory and criticism. The book covers current topics in the field, such as nationhood, hybridity and identity, globalism and the local, diasporas, the politics of gender, and cultural diversity and difference. These are discussed as theories developed in a variety of disciplines, and through case studies that emphasise a range of cultural practices, including popular music, literature, tourism, and oral performances. The case studies focus upon postcolonial Britain, India, the English-speaking Caribbean, Ireland, South Africa and Australasia. Three chapters discuss particular modes of cultural production and performance: music, film, and the body cultures of dance and sport. The remaining three chapters deal with wider issues of memory, land, and alternative world-views. Features * Extends existing literature based studies to focus on post-colonial culture with examples from film, music, literature and body cultures such as dance and sport. * Addresses key topics of nationhood, hybridity and identity, globalism and the local, diasporas, the politics of gender, cultural diversity and difference, land and memory. * A detailed introduction assesses the current state of Postcolonial Studies and introduces the main terms and debates around postcolonial culture * Well-chosen case studies relate theoretical discussion to cultural practice
