Contemporary Trends in Postcolonial Studies

E-ISSN: 2582-0400 | CODEN: LITIBR

Last date of submission of manuscripts: 15th November, 2021 (15-11-2021)

The recent trends in Postcolonial studies are multifaced and highlights the global dialectic to an enormous extent. Waves of change are visible in various segments like film, theatre, art forms, literature, translational contexts, cityscapes and even in culinary arts. The entire discourse about the centre of power has undergone major change, with regions, pockets and cityscapes that are contributing to the restructuring of the Postcolonial concept as a whole. If questions are raised about the fundamental rights of the people, then stages of resistance have also changed drastically. The effect of political supremacy of the colonial governance has given rise to more complicated hierarchies that continue even as the larger goals of the Postcolonial discourse. Gender, sexuality, diseases, travel narratives and studies about the environment all have undergone major alterations in narrating new avenues to study Postcolonialism.

As the percipient commentator Gaurav Desai points out in his essay Rethinking English: Postcolonial English Studies, “accommodation” is a term that can be considered “one of the more contentious terms in the study of postcolonialism precisely because it is essentially ambivalent signifier”. (Schwarz and Ray, 524)[1] It is this study of the ambivalence that has sparked institutional approaches to postcolonial studies to be more interesting. Studying the different aspects of postcolonialism in and beyond academia has thus become amenable to several interpretations. Discourses and counter-discourses arise, and the argument comes to an unsettling phase.
