The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Postcolonial Studies is soliciting contributions for 400 original entries (“headwords”) on a wide range of topics relating to colonial/ postcolonial dynamics. Our coverage is global and ranges historically from cultures of contact (1492) through European colonization and imperialism to the present, with emphasis on movements of decolonization post WWII. With regional editors on three continents we ensure a wide geographical representation.
Our focus is largely cultural and literary within the broad social and economic reaches of imperial processes. Headwords should be designed for the general reader and should cover the most representative figures, events, and concepts in a region, and should incorporate the most recent scholarly developments. We welcome contributions that address culture from a materialist perspective.
Sample entries begin with:
Adichie, Chimamanda Ngozi
Adonis (Ali Ahmad Said Asbar)
African American Culture and Society
African American Literature, Criticism, and Theory
And end with:
Women in Literature
Young, Robert J. C.
