"The Post-Colonial Question" brings together renowned and emerging critical voices to respond to questions raised by the concept of the "post-colonial." The stellar list of contributors moves from imperious histories to today's hybrid rhythms of urban life, from African-American writings to uneasy mixtures of nationalisms and religion in the post-colonial city. Together, they explore the diverse cultures and disparate narratives which shape our increasingly volatile global furture.
Contributors include Homi K. Bhabha, Iain Chambers, Lidia Curti, Paul Gilroy, Lawrence Grossberg, Stuart Hall, Hanif Kureishi, Angela McRobbie, Trinh T. Minh-ha, and Vron Ware.
