Postcolonial Interruptions, Unauthorised Modernities Paperback / softback

Part of the Radical Cultural Studies series


Postcolonial Interruptions, Unauthorised Modernities is a ground-breaking work that revaluates the cultural and political understandings of the world today from the perspective of the south.

Largely located in the Mediterranean, and in understandings of a `southern question' that extends beyond local and national confines, the arguments and perspectives proposed seek to explore the historical formation and political configurations of a multiple modernity.

Drawing upon the interdisciplinary lines of thought developed within cultural and postcolonial studies, the work develops a concept of heritage beyond the concerns and obsessions of the Anglo-American world.

It offers a counter-hegemony construction of the figure of the migrant and `other' as a disruptive force in the construction of the idea of the West.

It proposes a rethinking of the geo-political economies of knowledge and power, lived and viewed from elsewhere.

This accessibility written book should be of interest to anyone interested in the construction of modernity and the future of postcolonial studies.
