Traveling Theories after Culture and Imperialism

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

Twenty years after its publication, Culture and Imperialism continues to be seen as part of the defining moment of postcolonial readings of our contemporary world. The anniversary marks an opportunity to revisit the landscape of culture and imperialism as envisaged by Edward Said, but also to discuss the productiveness and limitations of its applicability to our contemporary world. This article’s first part focuses on the relevance of Said’s critique of culture and imperialism today, while the second part addresses how its legacy can be used as a point of departure to examine one of the lesser discussed Anglophone postcolonial sites.
