Imagining the Other: The Representation of the Papua New Guinean Subject

Capa

0 Críticas
Much has been written about Papua New Guinea over the last century and too often in ways that legitimated or served colonial interests through highly pejorative and racist descriptions of Papua New Guineans. Paying special attention to early travel literature, works of fiction, and colonial reports, laws, and legislation, Regis Tove Stella reveals the complex and persistant network of discursive strategies deployed to subjugate the land and its people.
