Omtale Beyond Postcolonial Theory
Opposing the orthodoxies of establishment post-colonialism, Beyond Post-Colonial Theory posits acts of resistance and subversion by people of colour as central to the unfolding dialogue with Western hegemony. In this volume, acclaimed scholar E. San Juan, Jr. questions the various clich�that stereotype 'third world' cultures. The testimonies and signifying practices of Rigoberta Menchu, C.L.R. James, various 'minority' writers in the United States, and intellectuals from Africa, Latin America, and Asia are counterposed against the dogmas of contingency, borderland nomadism, panethnicity, and the ideology of identity politics and transcultural postmodern pastiche. Reappropriating ideas from Gramsci, Bakhtin, Althusser, Freire, and others in the radical democratic tradition, San Juan deploys them to recover the memory of national liberation struggles (Fanon, Cabral, Che Guevara) on the face of the triumphal march of globalized capitalism.
