The Postcolonial Middle Ages Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The increased importance of minority and subjugated voices has led to a new interest in the effects of colonization and displacement on medieval culture. The essays examine the establishment of colony, empire, and nationalism in order to expose the mechanisms of oppression through which “aboriginal,” “native” or simply pre-existent cultures are displaced, eradicated, or transformed.

Book News Annotation:

US and Canadian scholars of history and literature present 14 original essays urging readers to reconsider the central place accorded progress narratives about Europe and Christianity and to decenter even the usual intellectual positioning of them to avoid type-casting all non-European, non-Christians as Others who lived on the periphery or frontier. The 2000 hard cover edition was published by St. Martin's Press.
