Spatialising Politics: Culture and Geography in Postcolonial Sri Lanka brings together essays on the theme of spatial politics of Sri Lanka. Space is an important factor in the ongoing ethnic conflict fuelling Sri Lanka′s continuing civil war. Claims and contestations over the integrity of island space and the control of northern and eastern territories are central to the violently contested dispute. The editors view space from a different perspective. They argue that space is important through a number of registers less frequently invoked in dominant approaches to understanding postcolonial Sri Lankan nationhood, identity and difference. The book examines and historicizes the role of spatialities often occluded within the debates on Sri Lankan politics such as, cities and built-space, diasporic productions and imaginations, commodity cultures and their concordant networks, knowledge spaces and ′foreign′ intervention, landscape and sacred space, as well as geographical knowledge.

Situated at the intersection of human geography and postcolonial studies, the book signals the ways that postcolonialism and geography are intimately linked and how their intersections evoke the social, spatial and political effects of enduring colonial discourse and representation. In developing its argument, Spatialising Politics also gestures towards alternative spatial imaginations, possibilities and representations, at a time when spaces for alternative discourses on Sri Lankan politics are fast shrinking.

Book Description Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Spatialising Politics: Culture and Geography in Postcolonial Sri Lanka brings together a collection of essays that take as their theme the spatial politics of Sri Lanka. It highlights the importance of space in the ongoing ethnic conflict fuelling Sri Lanka’s continuing civil war and invokes a number of aspects less frequently cited in the dominant approaches to understanding postcolonial Sri Lankan nationhood and identity. The essays in the volume examine the role of ‘spatialities?often occluded within the debates on Sri Lankan politics—amongst them, cities and built-space, diasporic productions and imaginations, commodity cultures and their concordant networks, knowledge spaces and ‘foreign?interventions, landscape and sacred spaces. Situated at the intersection of human geography and postcolonial studies, the book signals the ways that postcolonialism and geography are intimately linked, their intersections evoking the social, spatial and political effects of enduring colonial representations and materialities. The book will be of immense relevance to postgraduate students of human geography and South Asian studies, and will find enthusiastic readership amongst researchers in related disciplines, such as cultural studies, anthropology and sociology, who are interested in the spatial turn in postcolonial theory and its approaches to conceptualising nation, identity and belonging.
