The Stockton Postcolonial Studies Project Home

This is the home page of the Stockton Postcolonial Studies Project, an ongoing digital research project that explores different theoretical arenas within postcolonial studies. “Postcolonial Studies” encapsulates a series of theories and methodologies that have impacted disciplines as diverse as history, literature, anthropology, sociology and political economics. Its roots stem from an intellectual imperative to radically reinterpret the histories, cultures and representation of formerly colonized peoples, a call pioneered in the 1980s by critics such as Edward Said, V.Y. Mudimbe, and members of the Subaltern Studies group.

The Project is an effort to document recent trends in the history of postcolonial studies across a variety of fields and disciplines. From July 2011, the Project will be indexed in the Modern Language Association‘s database of scholarly websites.
