In Other Words: Dialogizing Postcoloniality, Race, and Ethnicity is a collection of essays by scholars and Americanists who labor under the conviction that the dynamically evolving field of postcolonial studies facilitates the development of new ways of conceptualizing race and ethnic studies. On guard against reductive statements and aware of the danger of blurring historical differences, the book encourages the reader to enter the dialogue between postcolonial studies and discourses on race and ethnicity. It demonstrates rhetorical and conceptual affinities between the fields and examines counter-narratives of resistance to imperial narratives and the politics of dominance. Concurrently the anthology challenges the reader to engage in the broader and trans-global reading of cultures marked by the experience of political exploitation and erasure.
