About Postcolonial Space

. . . Masood Raja’s Postcolonial Space (2002) marshalled emerging text-based internet culture to establish and identify key terms, theorists, and stakes for postcolonial thought. (Risam, Roopika. New Digital Worlds: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Theory, Praxis, and Pedagogy. Northwestern UP, 2018).

Launched as an author website in 2002 (as masoodraja.com) Postcolonial Space is an open academic resource for all those who are interested in Postcolonial theory and literature. While some pages on this website are specifically meant for Dr.  Raja’s students, most other scholarly and academic content about Postcolonial Studies is available as an open resource for scholars and students of Postcolonialism.
