Postsocialist ≠ postcolonial? On post-Soviet imaginary and global coloniality
Peoples' Friendship University of Russia.
2012 (English)In: Journal of Postcolonial Writing, ISSN 1744-9855, E-ISSN 1744-9863, Vol. 48, no 2, 130-142 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article presents the main conceptual intersections and differences between postcolonial studies as a product of the anglophone world, of the history of relations between the British Empire and its colonies, and a critical analysis of post-Soviet discourses and processes, particularly in relation to Russia/USSR and its ex-colonies. This complicates the dichotomous scheme west versus east, north versus south, reflecting the difference between historical colonialisms and the phenomenon of global coloniality, which has assumed a specific guise in Russian/Soviet versions of modernity, marked by external imperial difference.
