The recent global reality of both forced and voluntary migrations,
massive transfers of population, and traveling and transplanted cultures
is seen as part and parcel of the postindustrial, postmodern,
postcolonial experience. The Postcolonial Studies Series will explore
the enormous variety and richness in postcolonial culture and
transnational literatures.

The series aims to publish work which explores various facets of the
legacy of colonialism including: imperialism, nationalism, representation
and resistance, neocolonialism, diaspora, displacement and migratory
identities, cultural hybridity, transculturation, translation, exile,
geographical and metaphorical borderlands, transnational writing. This
series does not define its attentions to any single place, region, or
disciplinary approach, and we are interested in books informed by a
variety of theoretical perspectives. While seeking the highest standards
of scholarship, the Postcolonial Studies Series is thus a broad forum for
the interrogation of textual, cultural and political postcolonialisms.

The Postcolonial Studies Series is committed to interdisciplinary and
cross cultural scholarship. The series’ scope is primarily in the
Humanities and Social Sciences. For example, topics in history,
literature, culture, philosophy, religion, visual arts, performing arts,
language & linguistics, gender studies, ethnic studies, etc. would be
suitable. The series welcomes both individually authored and
collaboratively authored books and monographs as well as edited
collections of essays. The series will publish manuscripts primarily in
English (although secondary references in other languages are certainly
acceptable). Page count should be one hundred and twenty pages minimum
to two hundred and fifty pages maximum. Proposals from both emerging and
established scholars are welcome. (Mia Zamora, Ph.D., Series Editor)
