What People are Saying About This
“Madina Tlostanova’s Postcolonialism and Postsocialism in Fiction and Art is a bold and timely account of why any critical understanding of the postsocialist condition and its relationship to the postcolonial world must contend with Soviet modernity as a twin (if failed) project of Western modernity. This immaculately researched engagement with the art, fiction, cinema and theater of the former Soviet Union and the ex-Soviet colonies in Central Asia and the Caucasus demonstrates the breathtaking range of subversive and emancipatory practices that have created a decolonial “community of sense.” By centering on decolonial aesthesis a part of the world that has been neglected in much of the existing literature on postcolonialism and postsocialism, Tlostanova has made a vital contribution to how we understand global coloniality and decolonial praxis.” (Neda Atanasoski, Associate Professor, Department of Feminist Studies, University of California Santa Cruz, USA)
