As the first critical collection of essays to consider the representation of sexuality across such a wide variety of contemporary writing, Sexuality and Contemporary Literature analytically foregrounds insights into the historical and current arrangements of sexuality that contemporary literature provides, while also inviting the reader to imagine other possibilities for the future that literary texts open up.
Challenges and Opportunities
As the debate over the benefits of globalization continues unabated, there is a need for public relations scholarship to engage in that debate by challenging existing paradigms and theories. This book outlines not only a wide ranging set of issues raised by globalization in postcolonial nations, it ties those issues to public relations campaigns that are both alleviating and exacerbating those issues.
Postcolonial, Transnational, and Literary Perspectives
The word “empire” augurs new forms of sovereignty that have toppled the “nation-state” and “imperialism,” which was engendered by the European powers during the process of colonization. This book extends the application of postcolonial theories to reflect not only on the traditional relations between colonizer and colonized but also on those between metropolis and colonies in the Maghreb, France, Latin America, England, the United States, the Caribbean, and Australia.
This is the first critical study of Reinaldo Arenas from a postcolonial venue. It is an important book for all those in Latin American studies and postcolonial studies.
