An interdisciplinary collection of essays designed to map out a wide-ranging and productive future for postcolonial studies, this volume assesses the current state of the field and points toward its most promising new developments. In addressing questions about the definition and relevance of postcolonial scholarship, many of the essays consider its relation to the study of globalization. While some contributors offer broad reflections on the existing two-way influence between postcolonial theory and established university disciplines such as literary criticism and history, others forge ahead into some vital, if nascent, areas for postcolonial research such as media studies, environmental studies, religious studies, and linguistic and semantic analysis.The contributors represent many of the fields altered by postcolonial studies over the past two decades, including literary studies, history, anthropology, Asian and African studies, and political science. They model diverse applications of postcolonial theory to Latin America, East Asia, the Middle East, and the United States. Postcolonial Studies and Beyond propels the field forward. It showcases scholars coming from intellectual precincts usually considered outside the purview of the postcolonial finding new ways to deploy classic techniques of postcolonial analysis, and scholars strongly associated with postcolonial studies offering substantial critiques designed to challenge the field's most fundamental assumptions.

"What truly distinguishes this volume is its attempt to find for postcolonial studies a real critical vocation at a time when the issue of Empire is once again a global subject of debate. Rich in scholarship and in the diversity of views represented here, this book will help renew the questions it addresses."-Dipesh Chakrabarty, author of Provincializing Europe: Postcolonial Thought and Historical Difference "Postcolonial Studies and Beyond will have a place in reviewing and defining the development of postcolonial studies similar to that which Marxism and the Interpretation of Culture had for cultural studies."-David Lloyd, coeditor of The Politics of Culture in the Shadow of Capital
