“WHERE TO KNOW? POSTCOLONIAL POLITICS IN THE 21st CENTURY (Book Launch)

Thursday 26th April 2018, 6: 00 PM – 8: 00 PM @ Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, Arts 1 Lecture Theatre, London E1 4NS – FREE TO ATTEND

A round-table to mark the launch of the Routledge Handbook of Postcolonial Politics edited by Olivia U. Rutazibwa and Robbie Shilliam.

The Handbook introduces and develops cutting-edge analytical frameworks that draw on Black, de-colonial, feminist, indigenous, Marxist and postcolonial thought as well as a multitude of intellectual traditions from across the globe. Alongside empirical issue areas that remain crucial to assessing the impact of European and Western colonialism on global politics, the book introduces new issue areas that have arisen due to the mutating structures of colonial and imperial rule.

This vital resource is split into five thematic sections, each featuring a brief, orienting introduction:

1. Points of Departure
2. Popular Postcolonial Imaginaries
3. Struggles over the Postcolonial State
4. Struggles over Land
5. Alternative Global Imaginaries

Providing both a consolidated understanding of the field as it is, and setting an expansive and dynamic research agenda for the future, this Handbook is essential reading for students and scholars of International Relations alike.
