Download Postkoloniale Theorie: Eine kritische Einführung by María do Mar Castro Varela, Nikita Dhawan PDF

By María do Mar Castro Varela, Nikita Dhawan

Die koloniale Beherrschung stellt ein wirkmächtiges Ereignis solchen Ausmaßes dar, dass es nicht verwundert, dass postkoloniale Studien aktuell zu den einflussreichsten kritischen Interventionen zählen.
Postkoloniale Theorie zielt darauf ab, die verschiedenen Ebenen kolonialer Begegnungen in textlicher, figuraler, räumlicher, historischer, politischer und wirtschaftlicher Perspektive zu analysieren. Der Fokus liegt dabei nie auf einzelnen Regionen oder Disziplinen – vielmehr wird versucht, die sozio-historischen Interdependenzen und Verflechtungen zwischen den Ländern des »Südens« und des »Nordens« herauszuarbeiten.
Gleichwohl widersetzt sich der Begriff »postkolonial« einer exakten Markierung: Weder bezeichnet er einen spezifisch-historischen Zeitraum noch einen konkreten Inhalt oder ein klar bestimmbares politisches Programm.
Diese Einführung eröffnet das weite und dynamische Feld postkolonialer Theoriebildung über eine kritische Debatte der Schriften der drei prominentesten postkolonialen Stimmen – Edward acknowledged, Gayatri Spivak und Homi Bhabha. Die stark überarbeitete und aktualisierte zweite Auflage unterzieht insbesondere die neuen Schriften Spivaks und Bhabhas einer kritischen Würdigung, setzt sich aber auch ausführlich mit den gegenwärtigen Diskussionen um Globalisierung, faith, Menschenrechte, transnationale Gerechtigkeit, internationales Recht, Entwicklungspolitiken und Dekolonisierung auseinander.

»Mit der ersten Auflage ›Postkoloniale Theorie‹ von María do Mar Castro Varela und Nikita Dhawan ist diese kritische Theorierichtung im deutschsprachigen Raum angekommen. Die komplett überarbeitete und deutlich erweiterte zweite Auflage integriert nun die wichtigsten Weiterentwicklungen postkolonialer Theorie. Sie richtet sich an Einsteiger/-innen und Kenner/-innen postkolonialer Theorie gleichermaßen. Ein Muss für alle, die sich kritisch mit Gesellschaftstheorien beschäftigen.«
(Shalini Randeria, Rektorin, Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, Wien & Professorin, The Graduate Institute, Genf)

»Dies ist eine klare und kompetente Darstellung der Hauptrichtungen postkolonialer Theorie.«
