The question of the relation of language to voice traces back to Aristotle’s De interpretatione, with its definition of speech as the sign of thought, and writing the sign of speech. In Jacques Derrida’s account of this phonologocentric model, voice is the ligature of “phōnē and logos,” securing their essential proximity. But if voice is only a mediation, then, as Barbara Johnson writes, voice is no longer “self-identity but self-difference.” Paradoxically, the voice marks the singular but is itself plural, sweeping the self up into an ever-ramifying play of differentiation. As David Lawton proposes, “voice is both a signature, ‘I,’ singularity, and a clear marker of difference, ‘not I,’ multiplicity”.

The Empire definitely wrote back, often with defiance, mockery, and wit.

As Bill Ashcroft summarizes of postcolonial criticism, “this was a new way of reading those literatures that emphasized their transformative power as well as their difference.”

I am seeking papers on satirical material, in all media, which engage with postcolonial issues.
