What

Call for Contributions: Postcolonial Interventions (ISSN 2455-6564) Vol. III, Issue 1, January 2018

Topics

In her recently published book, Postcolonialism and Postsocialism in Fiction and Art: Resistance and Re-existence (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017) Madina Tlostanova proposes an intersection between postcolonialism and postsocialism by foregrounding how the subjects of the former Soviet Bloc, exposed to the vicissitudes of a neo-liberal capitalist world order, are experiencing a sense of pervasive socio-economic deprivation that is accompanied by racial and ethnic fundamentalisms, growing gender-inequalities and a certain invisibility in the dominant narratives of the global order where they continue to be subjected to derogatory stereotyping and systemic erasure – an experience that resembles that of many subjects in postcolonial states. […] The conjunction of postcolonialism and postsocialism might investigate these issues and being mindful of both resistance and co-existence. Vol. III, Issue 1 of Postcolonial Interventions invites scholarly papers that would investigate such possibilities and more in an effort to expand critical horizons while remaining open to the nuances of multi-spatial hermeneutics within a pluriversal critique.

Possible topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Neo-liberal capitalism and the postcolonial state
  • Subaltern resistances and negotiations
  • The legacy of 1917 – socialist possibilities in a post-Soviet era
  • Ethnocentric nationalism and religious fundamentalism
  • Revivalist patriarchies and resistance
  • Alternate modernities
  • Globalectics and utopian possibilities
  • Postcolonial cyberture
