“Engaging and insightful, this is a valuable contribution to the continuing debate around the future of postcolonial studies, and indeed the debates around its past.”
–Michael Kelly OBE, University of Southampton
“Bourdieu and Postcolonial Studies is a credit to Liverpool University Press and to their increasingly world-leading series Postcolonialism Across the Disciplines and Francophone Postcolonial Studies. Its chapters represent a successful and illuminating synthesis of new and previously published material, theoretical engagement, and rigorous sociological analysis. At the same time, it invites readers to rethink their understanding of literary centers and margins and the flow of power between them. The volume’s authors are clearly aware of–and sensitive to–the travails, crises, and fragility of the field and, together, they make a persuasive and reassuring defense of the possibilities for resistance, opposition, and renewal in postcolonial literature and postcolonial studies.”
