Postcolonial Theory

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftReviewForskningfagfællebedømt

This chapter covers selected research in postcolonial theory published in 2021. It begins with a discussion of how postcolonial theory can be said to take a local turn with reference to a volume that treats the phenomenon of BrexLit, before focusing on two texts that take postcolonial theory into the arena of the social sciences. The chapter then reviews a book that parses how postcolonial theory is embroiled in matters ideological before ending with a discussion of a text that provides an alternative history of gender and sexualities. The varied work discussed in this chapter demonstrates how postcolonial theory remains a productive resource in attempts to revitalize already established fields of study and, by extension, that postcolonial theory continues to hold critical and explanatory traction. The essay is divided into five sub-sections: 1. Introduction; 2. BrexLit; 3. The Social Sciences; 4. Ideology; 5. Sexualities.
