Geographies of philological knowledge : postcoloniality and the Transatlantic national epic by Nadia Altschul( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geographies of Philological Knowledge examines the relationship between medievalism and colonialism in the nineteenth-century Hispanic American context through the striking case of the Creole Andrés Bello (1781 & ndash;1865), a Venezuelan grammarian, editor, legal scholar, and politician, and his lifelong philological work on the medieval heroic narrative that would later become Spain & rsquo;s national epic, the Poem of the Cid.

Medievalisms in the postcolonial world : the idea of "the Middle Ages" outside Europe( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fascinating study explores the intersection of postcolonial theory and medievalism. While the latter has traditionally been defined primarily in terms of European nationalism, the essays in this volume discuss medievalism in regions as wide-ranging as the United States, India, Latin America, and Africa. This innovative approach demonstrates the ways alternative conceptions of medieval and modern history can provide new insights into the idea of the Middle Ages and the origins and legacy of colonialism. Through diverse and thought-provoking essays, the contributors demonstrate that writing the Middle Ages has been key in colonial and postcolonial struggles over racial, ethnic, and territorial identity. They also argue that colonial medievalisms are crucial to understanding the history of entrenched temporal and political partitions, such as medieval/modern and East/West. The essays are divided into four sections that address a set of related questions raised by the literary and political intersections of medievalism and colonialism. Each section is followed by a response -- two are by postcolonial theorists and two by medievalists -- that carefully considers the essay's arguments and comments on its implications for the respondent's field of study" -- Publisher's blurb
