Edward Said's Translocations synopsis
Working with transitions enabled Edward Said to refer to interdependence and integration across geographical and disciplinary boundaries while acknowledging the cultural difference and the distinctive historical experiences of the colonizer and the colonizer. This book highlights Said's politics of reading, from his literary criticism in English to his political columns in Arabic.
International contributors - from Britain, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Switzerland, and the United States - are investigating his intellectual legacy without necessarily identifying themselves with the critical positions these entail. Rather than treating his work as a unified theoretical discipline, the various arguments explored offer a critical appraisal of those situations in which his writing entered into a fruitful relationship with theoretical positions and other interlocutors.
The group takes into account location, which has always been a central classification in and for Said's writing; Readings, which define the verbs with which, according to Said, the world is shaped; And legacies of many fields across the boundaries of established academic disciplines that faced Said's challenges. The critical positions visited in this book include critical and cultural theory, post-colonialism, literary studies, theater and performance studies, and visual and musical studies..
