    [b][size=18]Postcolonialism


    It deals with cultural identity in colonised societies: the dilemmas of
    developing a national identity after colonial rule; the ways in which
    writers articulate and celebrate that identity (often reclaiming it
    from and maintaining strong connections with the coloniser); the
    ways in which the knowledge of the colonised (subordinated)
    people has been generated and used to serve the coloniser's
    interests; and the ways in which the coloniser's literature has
    justified colonialism via images of the colonised as a perpetually
    inferior people, society and culture. These inward struggles of
    identity, history, and future possibilities often occur in the metropolis
    and, ironically, with the aid of postcolonial structures of power, such
    as universities. Not surprisingly, many contemporary postcolonial
    writers reside in London, Paris, New York and Madrid
