   schema:reviewBody ""Interdisciplinary Measures makes the case for a cross-disciplinary but literature-centred approach to postcolonial studies. Despite the anxieties that interdisciplinarity brings with it, a combination of different, discontinuously structured disciplinary knowledges is arguably best suited to address the tangled concerns of both the globalized present and the colonial past. The book looks specifically at the intersections between literary criticism, history, anthropology, geography and environmental studies, while arguing more specifically for a postcolonialism across the disciplines in the service of informed (cross- ) cultural critique. Bringing together a wide range of literary material from Africa, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, New Zealand and South Asia, the book also considers the different, but sometimes related, cultural contexts within which the key debates in postcolonial studies - for example those around globalization, North-South relations and the new imperialism - are currently taking place. These debates suggest the need for a multi-sited, multilinguistic and, not least, multidisciplinary approach to postcolonial studies that consolidates its status as a comparative field."--Jacket." ;
