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.

Call for Papers: Nevertheless, She Resisted: Will and Consent in Medieval Rape Narratives (essay collection) 

As Amy Vines notes, rape in medieval literature often functions as a “chivalric necessity,” a means of articulating masculine identity that elides or ignores questions of female bodily sovereignty and autonomy of will in favor of the male protagonist’s development. Yet we also find instances where texts implicitly or explicitly call attention to the act of rape as a violation of female will—whether in dread of the act, in the face of its perpetration, or in its aftermath—or explore the nature of consent and its often problematic conditions or interpretation.
