    schema:description "This volume seeks to recognize and reflect upon the postcolonial character of the contemporary conjuncture while asking whether postcolonial criticism can adequately grasp it. Neither simply for nor against postcolonialism, The Postcolonial Contemporary cuts across the false alternative, thinking with postcolonial theory about political contemporaneity. Many of the most influential frameworks of postcolonial theory were developed from the 1970s to the 1990s, during what we may now recognize as the twilight of the postwar period. If forms of capitalist imperialism are entering into new configurations of neoliberal privatization, wars-without-end, xenophobic nationalism, and unsustainable extraction, what aspects of post-colonial inquiry must be reworked or revised in order to grasp our political present? The book's twelve contributors, from a range of disciplines and regional locations--history, anthropology, literature, geography, indigenous studies; the Black Atlantic; South Africa, South Asia, East Asia, Australia, Argentina--push past our habitual oppositions: universal versus particular; Marxism versus postcolonialism; politics versus culture. They reckon with colonial temporality, deprovincializing the Global South, beyond Marxism versus postcolonial studies, and postcolonial spatiality and new political imaginaries. From the book's powerful and substantial Introduction through its dozen compelling chapters, The Postcolonial Contemporary will be a landmark volume for reassessing a crucial critical framework for today's world--back cover."@en ;
