“In New Materialism: Interviews and Cartographies four prominent theorists who have grappled throughout their careers with crucial issues of materiality, embodiment and subjectivity present their latest thinking in lively and engaging dialogues.

The Postcolonial Industry. Icons, Markets, Mythologies.

“Sandra Ponzanesi's The Postcolonial Cultural Industry offers a refreshingly new take on the contemporary postcultural global marketplace. Even as she investigates precisely how culture industries capitalise on all things postcolonial, Ponzanesi highlights those artworks that routinely escape commodification through their canny renegotiation of the culture games. A must read for scholars of cultural globalisation, The Postcolonial Cultural Industry is a critically astute and intellectually lively book on the political economy of postcolonial studies.” – Bishnupriya Ghosh (University of California)

Editor: Dr Sandra Ponzanesi
Palgrave MacMillan, 2014

Everyday Feminist Research Praxis: Doing Gender in the Netherlands

 “Everyday Feminist Research Praxis: Doing Gender in the Netherlands will come as a breath of fresh air to readers of many different feminist persuasions in many different parts of the world. Modeling rich intergenerational as well as transnational and interdisciplinary intra-actions, the essays evoke a universe of new possibilities for feminist exploration. The conversation among pioneering feminist scholars of my own generation that comprises the Epilogue moved me deeply and gives all that comes before it an astonishing depth of field.” – Marguerite Waller (University of California)
