Postcolonial Studies, Emory University

Postcolonial Studies, Emory University

The Postcolonial Studies website (PS) is a project in progress at the English Department at Emory University. Begun in Spring 1996, it is intended to serve primarily as a resource for students of postcolonial literature and theory at Emory University. Another important objective, however, is to provide a site on the Web where people from around the country and around the world can come for an introduction to major topics and issues in Postcolonial Studies. The information provided is not intended to be either exhaustive or authoritative, but rather to furnish a scaffolding for more intensive explorations into a field that is rapidly becoming very important.

Post-Colonial Theory (Non-Western Thought)–PHILWEB

Post-colonial theory is frequently classified in relation to cultural origin (e.g. Africa, Asia, Caribbean, and the like).  For further information on this, please go to Regions.  Here, however, I have attempted to offer an alternative framework that classifies Non-Western / Post-colonial theorists in relation to contemporary schools of thought.

Settler Colonial Studies

Settler Colonial Studies

Settlers are not migrants. They come to stay. Settlers are more than just colonisers. They are founders of political orders and exclusivist economic regimes. Settler colonialism is ubiquitous, as much a thing of the past as a thing of the present. Sometimes it overlaps with colonialism, sometimes it evolves from colonialism, but is always and everywhere extremely hard to dislodge.

This blog seeks to advance a critical appraisal of settler colonialism as a distinct and separate form. It follows scholarly developments that contribute to a greater historical awareness of this phenomenon within the disciplines of history and law, indigenous and colonial/postcolonial studies, as well as economics, politics, sociology and philosophy. Historical awareness, however, should always be accompanied by an awareness of the present. Therefore contemporary developments are also important to recognise.

The Imperial Archive

The Imperial Archive

This site provides resources for all those interested in the influence of the British imperial process on literature from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Using colonial discourse and post-colonial theory as a point of departure, some pages examine the British idea of ‘Empire’ and the colonial enterprise in a selected range of 19th-century authors and their work; others consider 20th and 21st-century texts, in an attempt to understand how imperialism affected literary texts produced in Britain’s former colonies.
