Relocating Postcolonialism brings together the essays of well-established contributors to postcolonialism as well as emergent scholars. The conversational quality of the volume, enhanced by the relay of themes explored by different essayists, provides a compelling portrait of postcolonialism's development that will be valuable to scholars, students, and teachers. The collection includes an incisive conversation between John Comaroff and Homi Bhabha, as well as a new essay by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. Probing well-known ideas as well as unexplored areas of concern, Relocating Postcolonialism locates the current state of postcolonial studies by examining its central lines of inquiry.
