Book cover Postcolonial Oceans 2023

Out Now: Postcolonial Oceans: Contradictions, Heterogeneities, Knowledges, Materialities

edited by Sukla Chatterjee, Joanna Chojnicka, Anna-Katharina Hornidge, and Kerstin Knopf

This book contributes to the study of oceans, seas, coastal waters, and rivers in the context of the Blue Humanities by approaching the topic of water from different epistemological, narratological, geographical, cultural, and disciplinary perspectives and connecting them.

The contributors from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, North America and the Pacific deal with the entanglements between oceans, coastal areas, rivers, humans, animals, plants, organisms, and landscapes in the fields of cultural history and cultural studies, critical race theory and postcolonial studies, marine and environmental studies, linguistics, literature, film and media studies.

Heidelberg University Press published the edited volume both as a hardcover (60 Euros) and as an open access e-book.
