This book of new essays investigates the category of the post-colonial as a theoretical concept, discourse, and state of mind. In an international forum of both literary critics and writers, these essays look at contemporary writing in English throughout the world in an attempt to revision the current critical practice of post-colonial studies. Structured as a dialogue between different views, Critics and Writers Speak will add to the self-reflexivity among post-colonial critics, extending the debate and stimulating dialogue about the future of post-colonial studies.
Igor Maver is Professor of English at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.

Editorial Reviews

This lively, intelligent, and wide-ranging book is also very timely. Combining a judicious introduction, essays, and interviews, Critics and Writers Speak: Revisioning Post-Colonial Studies will help its readers to understand one of the most important developments in literary theory of the last twenty years. Charting the movement from post-colonialism understood as post-independence writing to post-colonialism understood as a set of discursive practices, Critics and Writers Speak exhibits the underlying coherence of its subject and forecasts many of its directions of future development. I recommend this book most highly.
