Aims and scope

Postcolonial Studies is the journal of the Institute of Postcolonial Studies, Melbourne.

Postcolonial Studies is the first international journal dedicated to exploring the colonial encounter and the variety of ways in which colonial relations and processes shaped and continue to shape the global world order.

In the context of world history, the colonial encounter was a violent event whose legacies thread through to the present. Colonialism structures relationships between peoples in a multitude of ways. It gives rise to distinct bodies of literature and art, as well as political subjectivities and brutal economic inequalities. Colonial relationships and broader processes of coloniality are investigated from a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives. Postcolonial theory offers distinct critical perspectives on diverse circumstances historically and in the present. Postcolonial Studies is a leading forum for timely interventions and searching debates that traverse, but are not limited to, settler colonialism and indigenous-settler relations, nationalism, citizenship, statelessness, political violence, gender and sexuality, displacement and migration, climate justice and environmental ethics, human/non-human relations, decolonising movements, aesthetics, and poetics of colonial engagement.

Postcolonial Studies welcomes original, creative, and challenging submissions of diverse lengths and formats. The journal publishes research that is theoretically insightful and specifically grounded. It aims to generate dialogue and debate between theorists, writers, artists, and activists in support of world-changing relationships transnationally.

Authors can choose to publish gold open access in this journal.
