Gender and colonial space

Sara Mills

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides a trenchant analysis of social relations - notions of class, nationality, gender, spatial relations, landscape, topography and travel - in postcolonial contexts
  • Draws on a wide range of literary and non-literary texts to illustrate a fresh, more materialist approach to postcolonial theory
  • Demonstrates the importance of gender in the postcolonial theorising of space
  • Concentrates on the period of 'high' British colonialism at the close of the nineteenth century, and examines a range of contexts across India, Africa, America, Australia and Britain
  • Illustrates how relations must be analysed for the way in which different colonial contexts define and constitute each other
