2018 (English)In: Concurrences in postcolonial research: perspectives, methodologies, and engagements / [ed] Ngambouk Vitalis Pemunta, Stuttgart: Ibidem-Verlag, 2018, p. 15-52Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

One of the central preoccupations of postcolonial studies is ‘‘to recover the voice and agency of the subaltern to find alternative articulations to monolithic imperial representations. Universalizing perspectives obscure their origins and threaten to silence alternatives, regardless of their validity or influence"(Fur et al., 2014: 1253). The methodological and theoretical process of recovering alternative voices in space and time while factoring in our conflicting analysis claims regarding culture, history and identity is no easy feat.  The difficulties are because either one individual academic discipline or grand theory can fruitfully explain concurrent encounters. This difficulty is rather an invitation to open our eyes to the permeability of academic disciplines, concepts and methods as captured by the idea of ‘‘travelling concepts".
