ISBN 3-86057-741-7


This book presents a selection of those papers concerned with the general and comparative issues raised at the international conference on “Colonies, Missions, Cultures” staged in Tuebingen on 6-11 April 1999 by the European Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (EACLALS) and the Association for the Study of the New English Literatures (ASNEL). The congress was designed to take account of the complex dialectics of mission, colonisation and decolonisation in the English-speaking world. Thus the old and new forms of mission e.g. in hygiene, travelling, writing, ecology and electronic networking are assessed by experts. Arranged in four sections, contributions focus on the Colonial Logic of Missions, ‘Sub’missions and Forms of Resistance, the Formations and Deformations of Culture in the Colonial Process and, finally, Postcolonial Projects and Perspectives. The volume concludes with a “Summary Debate” based on the minutes and tapes made during workshops, panels and discussions with authors from Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Pacific, South Asia and the Caribbean. And index of names and subjects facilitates the reader's comparative orientation.
