Topic Description Research area
Shame in colonial and postcolonial literature in English A study of a the theme of shame that, due to the in-human staged in the colonial theatre and perpetrated till nowadays in new versions after decolonization, has been running through decades of colonial/postcolonial literature in English.The study, which avails itself of contributions from international scholars,involves reflections both on 'white' shame, i.e. the shame of the masters/colonizers and their 'tainted' descendants,as well of the shame of the colonized, originating in the power politics exerted on their bodies and minds. The relationship between shame and literary writing is a parallel theme that demands reflection. No need to underline the urgency of this theme, as witnessed every day by the refugees and asylum-seekers running for their bare lives to Europe- a 'boomerang invasion'. English literature
