In the Balance

Indigeneity, Performance, Globalization

Edited by Helen Gilbert, J. D. Phillipson, and Michelle H. Raheja

Liverpool University Press

  • First book to thoroughly triangulate concepts of indigeneity, performance and globalization in 21st century arts praxis as a way of opening up new perspectives on postcolonial cultural politics in different parts of the world
  • Rich assemblage of disciplinary perspectives, critical voices and illustrations, featuring a number of contributions by indigenous scholars and performance makers
  • New and cutting-edge insights into the performative character of repatriation, sovereignty, memory, diplomacy, activism, collaboration, dissent and agency, among other topics of perennial interest to postcolonial studies
  • Extensive scope, canvassing a wide range of art forms, practices, contexts and events in a trans-indigenous study that, unusually, extends beyond Anglophone settler states to Latin America and elsewhere
  • Topical analysis, showing the ways in which indigenous performance making not only offers significant insights into environmental, political and social challenges of our times but also raises questions for the future
