Genealogies of orientalism : history, theory, politics( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Orientalism, as explored by Edward Said in 1978, was a far more complex phenomenon than many suspected, being homogenous along the lines of neither culture nor time. Instead, it is deeply embedded in the collective reimaginings that were - and are - nationalism. The dozen essays in Genealogies of Orientalism argue that the critique of orientalism, far from being exhausted, must develop further. To do so, however, a historical turn must be made, and the ways in which modernity itself is theorized and historicized must be rethought." "According to Joan W. Scott, author of The Politics of the Veil, the essays in this collection "develop a remarkable perspective on Edward Said's Orientalism, placing it in a long historical context of critiques of colonial representations, and deepening our understanding of the very meaning of modernity." Looking beyond the usual geography of colonial theory, this work broadens the focus from the Middle East and India to other Asian societies. By exploring orientalism in literary and artistic representations of colonial subjects, the authors illuminate the multifaceted ways in which modern cultures have drawn on orientalist images and indigenous self-representations. It is in this complex, cross-cultural collision that the overlapping of orientalism and nationalism can be found."--BOOK JACKET
