3/1/04; Book Collection)
Unpublished essays that engage the Postcolonial treatment of Early Modern
texts and contexts from the perspective of contemporary novelists are
invited for a collection entitled Postcolonial Revisions of Early Modern
Histories. The book furthers a dialogue not only between Postcolonial and
Early Modern Studies from the relatively neglected vantage point of the
Postcolonial fiction writer, but also seeks to revise Postcolonial Studies
by extending its attention to regions and literatures that are only
beginning to be included in its corpus. As such then, contributions that
examine relatively under-theorized "postcolonial" locations in Africa, Latin
America, Asia, aboriginal Australia and the Pacific Islands, as well as
those that rethink the important touchstone locations for Postcolonial
Studies, such as the Caribbean and South Asia, are of interest.
