In addition, the collection addresses in at least two significant ways the question about "beyond postcolonialism" and the future of the discipline. First, by questioning and critically examining some foundational theories in postcolonialism, it points to possible new directions in our theoretical vocabulary. Second, it offers an array of reflections around disparate geographies that are, equally importantly, written in different languages. The value that the authors place on languages other than English and their choice to focus on the effect that multiple languages have on the present of postcolonial studies are in line with one of the aims of the collection - to make the case for a multilingual expansion of the postcolonial imaginary as a necessary imperative.
