Postcolonial Theory and Avatar
Access a Copy
Braiding together a discussion of reviving postcolonial studies with a critical interrogation of James Cameron's 2009 film Avatar, this book offers a concise introduction to postcolonial theory, focusing in particular on issues of representation, discourse, subalternity, and subject production, and it intervenes in the longstanding debate over reading Cameron's film as either an anti-colonial allegory or a racist narrative.
