Soviet Postcolonial Studies : A View from the Western Borderlands Hardback
by Epp Annus
Part of the BASEES/Routledge Series on Russian and East European Studies series
Postcolonial studies is a well-established academic field, rich in theory, but it is based mostly on postcolonial experiences in former West European colonial empires.
This book takes a different approach, considering postcolonial theory in relation to the former Soviet bloc.
It both applies existing postcolonial theory to this different setting, and also uses the experiences of former Soviet bloc countries to refine and advance theory.
Drawing on a wide range of sources, and presenting insights and material of relevance to scholars in a wide range of subjects, the book explores topics such as Soviet colonality as co-constituted with Soviet modernity, the affective structure of identity-creation in national and imperial subjects, and the way in which cultural imaginaries and everyday materialities were formative of Soviet everyday experience.
