Reencounters with Colonialism: New Perspectives on the Americas

Editors: Marysa Navarro, Donald E. Pease, Ivy Schweitzer, and Silvia Spitta, Dartmouth College

This series from Dartmouth College Press brings various theoretical and political perspectives to bear on issues such as transculturation, nationality, and nationalism. Rather than emphasize isolated contexts and countries, Reencounters with Colonialism goes beyond old ideological and geographic boundaries. It features theoretical debates that are currently shaping thought about Colonial and Post-colonial Studies, and fosters conversations among scholars from different perspectives on the intersections of race, state, gender, and locale. In doing so, it looks to emerging areas such as cultural studies and performance art and theory. This series seeks to configure the "Americas" as a shared intellectual space, home to Native Americans, Latinos, African-Americans, and European-Americans alike. It seeks to bring a variety of perspectives on colonialism into fruitful dialog and debate.
