Resource description

An oft-neglected element of postcolonial thought is the explicitly psychological dimension of many of its foundational texts. This volume explores the relation between these two disciplinary domains by treating the work of a variety of anti-colonial authors as serious psychological contributions to the theorization of racism and oppression. This approach demonstrates the pertinence of postcolonial thought for critical social psychology and opens up novel perspectives on a variety of key topics in social psychology. These include: the psychology of embodiment and racialization resistance strategies to oppression 'extra-discursive’ facets of racism; the unconscious dimension of stereotypes the intersection of psychological and symbolic modalities of power.
