It derives in part from the fact that there is no such thing as “the” Enlightenment but rather multiple Enlightenments shaped by different historical and political contexts; so too, the bundle of concepts and ideals to which “the” Enlightenment refers are plural and capable of a wide range of elaboration. As a general domain of intellectual inquiry, postcolonialism addresses those questions that emerge in relation to the aftermath of imperialism. [29] Maria Todorova, Imagining the Balkans, New York 1997. [13] Brigitte Kossek, Herausforderungen des Postkolonialismus für die feministische Geschichtsforschung, Beiträge zur historischen Sozialkunde, Sondernummer 2000: Geschlecht und Kultur, pp. This is all interlinked with a broadly defined modernism – the beginning of socialist and feminist movements, changes in societal structure, and increasingly stronger competition on the labour market. [3] Cf. [1] The dominated society is condemned to an instrumental role by the metropolis. The legacy is ambiguous, according to postcolonial theorists, because the age of Enlightenment was also an age of empire, and the connection between those two historical epochs is more than incidental. ): “Deconstructing Europe. 61-87. This diagnosis, mainly referring to India, can also be applied to domination and subordination relationships within Europe and other countries. Roland Sintos Coloma (ed. [70] Domańska, Badania postkolonialne, p. 164. Imperiale Weltverbesserung seit dem 18. Princeton 2005, pp. [56] Both in Feichtinger, Prutsch, Csáky (ed. On this backdrop, for example, the idea of incorporating postcolonial methodology into the context of social sciences and sociology emerged, as these share interest areas and problems (like migration, diaspora, subject, society, modernization, etc.) Galicja, Galizien, Halychyna, Galitsie; this province, “invented”[2] by the Habsburg administration, now divided by borders and memories, has been an extremely popular subject both in literary and scientific circles for a number of years. The authors of Orientalism and the Jews, Ivan Kalmar and Derek Penslar,expressed a similar criticism referring to and also extending Said’s concept. 47–67. His is a deeply unsettling argument, shaped undoubtedly by the brutal period of French colonial rule in Algeria and the war for independence (1954–62) there, which Fanon experienced firsthand. ), Schauplatz Kultur – Zentraleuropa. Here, we are dealing not only with strongly evaluating concepts, discursive combinations of cultural subordination represented by overseas colonies and non-German provinces of the Monarchy, but also with similarities in the discourse on “exclusion” due to racial/ethnic/cultural reasons and gender differences between both projects.[54]. ), Postcolonial Challenges in Education, Frankfurt a.M. etc. This ambivalence is an inherent part of the post(-)colonial discourse, but we still have to answer the question of how, in certain cases, it can be solved, considering the growing criticism of adding the attribute “post(-)colonial” to everything marked by the presence of cultural/political hegemony, and, on the other hand, the popularity of post(-)colonialism as a theory and, related to this, cultural self-identification.[72]. in: C. Nelson, L. Grossberg (ed. As a result it has been difficult for these states to carry out their policies and they have often had to resort to violence. Tim Beasley-Murray also noted that the German-language literature of the Monarchy can be described through the ambivalences of Slavic culture, being both “strange and familiar”. Спостереження, Київ 2011 and his other publications; V. Kelertas (ed.) In this sense, Dipesh Chakrabarty remarked that “the project of provincializing Europe cannot be a nationalist, nativist or atavist project”, because nationalism, like Marxism is entwined in the same imperial brutal continuum of universalistic epistemologies[35] (importantly, the English term ‘nationalism’ does not mean the same as the Polish pejorative ‘nacjonalizm’, but the process of stabilizing a national narrative accompanying the building of nationality[36]). Post-colonialism (or post-colonial theory) can refer to a set of theories in philosophy and literature that grapple with the legacy of colonial rule. [27] A. J. Kabir, D. Williams (ed. This opinion is supported by Jürgen Osterhammel, a historian from the University of Konstanz, who classified diverse colonial economic forms. 27-70. [23] “Cross-boundary interdiscursivity” was possible not only through migration, but also through the common use of the English language as a form of communication, making it possible in the first place. On the one hand, he points out the “colonial attitudes” of the German-language speaking people of Vienna towards many other groups, especially Slavic, which formed the cultural framework of towns and cities. Postcolonialism signals a possible future of overcoming colonialism, yet new forms of domination or subordination can come in the wake of such changes, including new forms of global empire. [18] Hubert Orłowski, Z modernizacją w tle. 114, 116-117. 14-17, here p. 14. [39] Following a similar approach, Heidemarie Uhl, an Austrian historian, noted that the postcolonial perspective used for the Habsburg Monarchy “should not lead to a reduction of the complexity of ethnic and national conflict positions and of the development of consensual concepts to a dichotomic pattern of a hierarchic difference between the hegemonic culture of the elite and ‘colonized’ ethnias or nationalities”. The first refers to colonisation of the local/indigenous other within one society (which may, but need not necessarily, come from outside), while the second colonialism is the classical form, i.e. She pointed out that in the history and culture of Poland features of both colonized and colonizer can be found, and relevant studies often bring surprising results. Postcolonialism is the critical academic study of the cultural legacy of colonialism and imperialism, focusing on the human consequences of the control and exploitation of colonized people and their lands. 51-93; see also Alois Woldan, Mit Austrii w literaturze polskiej, Kraków 2002; Василь Расевич, Історія міфу Галичини, (online: ), This is the main part of the Introduction, which was published in the 42 issue of periodical “Historyka” edited by Klemens Kaps and Jan Surman: “Historyka. More specifically, it is a critical-theory analysis of the history, culture, literature, and discourse of (usually European) imperial power. [16] This is associated with a shift, in terminology also, from the sociological definition of colonialism towards the categories of difference characteristic for the theory of discourse and (hegemonic) mental mapping. Galicia according to Saturczak comprises (in random order) Ukrainians, Poles, Poles of Ukrainian nationality, Russians, Ruthenians, Ukrainians of Polish origin, Jews, Poles of Jewish belief, “converted” Jews, UPA members, AK members, Soviets, post-Soviets, Franz Joseph and Józef Piłsudski. The fundamental decisions affecting the lives of the colonized people are made and implemented by the colonial rulers in pursuit of interests that are often defined in a distant metropolis. 11-33. ), Teoria postkolonialna: wprowadzenie krytyczne, transl. ), K. u. k. kolonial. Łukasz Saturczak, Galicyjskość [Galicianness], Warszawa 2010. Another aspect of the postcolonial change of perspective lies in the rejection of statically used cultural and social categories construed in essentialistic terms. The aspiration for self-determination at the heart of anticolonial struggles proved difficult to institutionalize democratically in existing postcolonial states (about which Fanon was remarkably prescient). Said defined Orientalism as “a Western style for dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient”[15] , which is (re)produced through the discursive “orientalisation” process. Ironically, this memory holds scenes of pogroms and multiethnicity, the Jagiellonian University and the Shevchenko Society, Mykhailo Hrushevsky and Michał Bobrzyński. 1-18, here p. 6. [57], Moritz Csáky has also recently expressed criticism of the “internal” German “colonialism” of the Habsburg Monarchy with respect to urban space. For example, Ulrich Bestes, during a conference held in Freiburg in November 2006, pointed to interactions between nationalistic and imperialistic discourses. In general, anthropology and “colonial” sciences have also been a subject in Wissenschaft und Kolonialismus [Science and Colonialism], a volume edited by Marianne Klemun. Regionale Perspektiven auf ein globales Phänomen, Frankfurt/M. The conditions attached for the ascription of rights, for example, or the distribution of liberties were often grounded in narratives of social or cultural development that justified denying rights and freedoms to those deemed too backward or uncivilized to exercise them properly. On the one hand it is an approach or theory, but on the other it is a way of attributing social/political status. Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders. The theoretical tools provided by the Enlightenment, combined with an often unrelenting cultural Eurocentrism, informed the political and economic practices of imperialism throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. The forms of employment associated with high status are restricted to representatives of the metropolis, while less prestigious and valued forms of labour or earning are performed by those classified as culturally low-value indigenous people. 177–190; Gholam Khiabany, De-Westernizing media theory, or reverse Orientalism: ‘Islamic communication’ as theorized by Hamid Mowlana, Media, Culture & Society, Vol. [38] This concept is used by Homi Bhabha, The Location of Culture, 1994. Postcolonial theory is a body of thought primarily concerned with accounting for the political, aesthetic, economic, historical, and social impact of European colonial rule around the world in the 18th through the 20th century. The myth of Galicia, if not found in a version idealising the diversity and equality of cultures, is also present in Polish and Ukrainian versions, strengthening the historical role of the region as the Piedmont of their own culture. Nevertheless, the Galicia through which Saturczak wanders is also the centre of mutual alienation, where people reject their neighbours and look down on others; this is a place of poverty, anti-Semitism, cultural exclusion, symbolic hegemonies and “internal nesting Orientalisms”. Post-colonial criticism is a method of analysis that addresses questions of racial identity and equality, and also of gender equity via two main modes of inquiry. [34] Tomasz Zarycki, Peryferie. [20] Jeffrey K. Wilson, Environmental Chauvinism in the Prussian East: Forestry as a Civilizing Mission on the Ethnic Frontier, 1871-1914, "Central European History" 41 (2008), pp. [55] Marianne Klemun (ed. Post-colonial societies, on the other hand, are said to be strong, in that people rely on social networks rather than the state to meet their needs. She expressed the cultural relativism (and also the anti-dominant view) that every ‘orient’ has ‘its own orient’, not only depending on hegemonic discourse, but also separately determined by its own cultural values. [46] Cf. 111-128, here pp. Although Orientalism and imperialism are typically considered to be products of the Enlightenment, several authors have also emphasized the ‘postcolonial aspects’ of Medieval culture. 150-156.

The hierarchy can also influence through the involvement of secondary actors in dominant discourses. This also enables the linking of the postcolonial project with the history of transfer, ‘entangled history’ or ‘histoire croisée’.
