Panel 16: Taking Postcolonialism elsewhere? Post-Soviet Postcolonialities

Panel Proposer: Alexander Vorbrugg

The history of Russian/Soviet imperialism and present-day post-Soviet realities are more or less absent from the field of postcolonial studies so far. While some critique this as a substantial lack and others claim that there are good reasons for this absence, others argue that there is no general answer to the question whether it is helpful and adequate to apply postcolonial theory to post-Soviet contexts or not.  If postcolonialism does not merely describe the condition of (formerly) colonized contexts, but rather offers a critical perspective to look at power relations, then the question is not whether a country is `postcolonial´ or not, but what happens when we apply postcolonial approaches and tools to specific issues in different contexts.
