Description - Feminist Postcolonial Theory by Reina Lewis

This text contains a range of influential readings from feminist theorizing. Divided into eight thematic sections, the readings have been selected in order to examine not just the textual and discursive nature of colonial and post-colonial discourse in relation to gender, but also the material effects of the post-colonial condition and practices developed in relation to it. The volume seeks to open up the field for students and scholars by juxtaposing a number of contested subjects. Readings thus cover a range of geographical regions (including South-east Asia, India, Africa, Latin America, Canada, Native America, Turkey, Egypt, Algeria, Australia and Ireland) and key topics (colonialism, "otherness", "third world", sexuality, sexual rights, the harem and the veil, space and writing). They also cover debates and questions relating to queer, aboriginal and indigenous women's issues. Not only does this anthology address the lack of attention to gender and feminism in early studies of colonial discourse, it provides resources for readers to trace the take-up of feminism in Third World contexts as well as the resultant critiques of First World feminism.
