Postcolonialism: My Living
This work charts the author’s intellectual journey during
the last ten years as an academic teaching Postcolonial
literature in a Canadian university. The essays critique the
dominant models of Postcolonial theory that emerge from
metropolitan centres and ignore the specifics of time and
place. Arun Mukherjee tests these theories by applying them
to her classroom experience of teaching authors such as Mulk
Raj Anand, Dionne Brand, Anita Desai, Claire Harris, Bessie
Head, Sky Lee, and many others.
"This book bespeaks a dedicated mind and an important critical voice among postcolonial readers."
"This is a book that feminists need to read."
