About the BookExploring the postcolonial terrain where ‘dislocation and relocation intertwine, where hope and disillusionment converge, where violence erupts and the human spirit prevails,’ Reconceiving Postcolonialism: Visions and Revisions aims at expanding the canon of Postcolonial Literature.
The book draws from the immense wealth of postcolonial writing and provides new perspectives on a wide range of writers as well as on the pertinent issues in the field of postcolonial writing and theory. Analyzing the major paradigms of postcolonial critique, the anthology deals with the emergent issues related to the engagements of postcolonial societies in a ‘glocal’ age.
