Postcolonial Studies Journal: Special Issue: "Postcolonial Food"

Postcolonial Studies is calling for contributions on the topic
of 'Postcolonial Food'. An early reviewer of Claudia Roden's 1968 A Book of
Middle Eastern Food, described the text as 'a work of cultural anthropology'.
The quote is a little misleading: for Roden not only describes a set of
foreign culinary practices, she gives recipes for their recreation. Imagine of
Postcolonial Studies saw that as its mission. We have devoted a great deal of
time to the critique of representation, but rather less to the possibility of
intercultural communication, not to mention learning.

Call For Papers—Please Forward

We call for papers for a proposed edited
collection on the topics of literature and
authority—governmental, legal, rhetorical,
anthropological--in the Pacific, including
Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the
Philippines, Malaysia, other Pacific Island
nations and Hawai'i. Successful essays will
address one or more Pacific writers and/or texts,
including both indigenous and "white" writers,
and will address either how the
interrelationships of politics and culture
affects writers, readers, and literature or how
literatures (traditional and non-traditional)
reflect themes of the relationship of history,
authority, and cultural self-expression.
