Sacred Modernity

Nature, Environment and the Postcolonial Geographies of Sri Lankan Nationhood

Tariq Jazeel

Liverpool University Press

  • First book that engages the triangulation of postcolonialism, nature, geography in Sri Lanka
  • A postcolonial geographical book that makes new contributions to postcolonial theory, particularly in relation to critically engaging space, nature, and architecture
  • Within the subdiscipline of 'postcolonial geography', the book's proximity to social and cultural geography, nature and religion, and South Asia, makes it different and more contemporary than competitive postcolonial geographical books
  • Two eye-catching case studies of Ruhuna National Park and Sri Lanka's tropical modern architecture offer a universal appeal beyond just Sri Lanka
