Uniting communication and postcolonial studies, this volume historically situates seminal essays in the field alongside new essays that aim to answer the question: "How, if at all, might communication scholars extend, or even renew, the postcolonial dialogue?" Beginning with the premise that in the field of communication studies, postcolonial theory has declined in the wake of globalization, the primary goal of this collection is to provide space for a variety of scholars - who often do not share the same impressions of the contemporary moment - to provoke discussion and debate geared toward understanding the strengths and limitations between these two interdisciplinary fields of study. In so doing, the collection highlights themes, trends, and conflicts that appear in the scholarship produced with postcolonial communication studies.

About Author

Rae Lynn Schwartz-DuPre (PhD, University of Iowa, 2006) is Associate Professor of Communication at Western Washington University. Her work emerges within and between the interdisciplinary scholarship of rhetoric, visual, memory, postcolonial, feminist, and critical/cultural studies. Her scholarship is, by and large, committed to understanding the ways in which (re)presentations rhetorically constitute knowledge and meaning, and to what effect. Her scholarship has appeared in journals such as Critical Studies and Media Communication, Feminist Media Studies, and Computer Mediated Communication.
