About the BookAs the academic literature is growing, the vibrant field of global analysis is increasing. Shining a light on the pertinent aspects of postcolonial writing, New Urges in Postcolonial Literature, which is an anthology of scholarly articles, brings together emerging critical voices to engage in the major debates within existing postcolonial studies, addressing issues such as hybridization, subaltern voices, decolonization, multiculturalism and border cultures. The authors critically examine the relevance of postcolonial theoretical perspectives and discuss the issues of empowerment and disempowerment; tensions between modernity and tradition; and ideas of development as connected to understandings of race, gender, caste and subalternity.
The book engages with the issues raised by contemporary practitioners, and offers a variety of illuminating insights on the fascinating subject of Postcolonial Studies which will enlighten the students, researchers and teachers of English literature.About the Author/sA gold medallist from the Patna University, Bihar, Sunita Sinha teaches English in Women’s College, Samastipur, Lalit Narain Mithila University, Bihar.
