New slaveries in contemporary British literature and visual arts

The ghost and the camp

Pietro Deandrea

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides an overview of the impact of globalisation's new slaveries on British literature and visual arts
  • Highlights the originality of recent patterns of development in British creative writing, drama, cinema and photography
  • Breaks new ground in the field of theory, adopting a double perspective based on post-colonial and Holocaust studies, seen here as mutually enriching
  • Makes a genuine contribution to the redefinition of post-colonial literary studies (and especially studies on slavery) in the context of globalisation
