About this book

Provides a critical space in which to interrogate the ways in which postcolonial voices are imagined and struggle to be valued, heard, and responded to. Takes the imagination of the postcolonial as its focus, acknowledging that it is a troubling, unsettling, and ambiguous concept requiring re-visiting and re-interpretation.
