Shakespeare, Race and Colonialism by Ania Loomba
Book DescriptionDid Shakespeare and his contemporaries think at all in terms of "race"? Examining the depiction of cultural, religious, and ethnic difference in Shakespeare's plays, Ania Loomba considers how 17th-century ideas differed from the later ideologies of "race" that emerged during colonialism, as well as from older ideas about barbarism, blackness, and religious difference. An accessible yet nuanced analysis of the plays explores how Shakespeare's ideas of race were shaped by beliefs about colour, religion, nationality, class, money and gender.

Rethinking Feminism in Early Modern Studies, Hardback (March 2016)
Features essays by scholars in the field of early modern studies on the possibilities of feminist criticism and theory. This book responds to anxieties that feminist criticism is in a state of decline by attending to, instead of ignoring debates and differences that have emerged in light of scholarly work on race, affect, and sexuality.
Modernist Literature and Postcolonial Studies, Hardback (May 2013)
Provides a fresh account of modernist writing in a perspective based on the reading strategies developed by postcolonial studies. In this book, the basic argument is that neither modernity nor colonalism (and likewise, neither postmodernity nor postcoloniality) can be properly understood without recognition of their intertwined development.
