  • 28.2 2006 – Derek Walcott

    • Abstract: Couverture du n° 28-2   2006,  - Derek Walcott Commonwealth Essays and Studies 28.2 (“Derek Walcott”) is an exceptional issue devoted to the poetic works of Derek Walcott, winner of the 1992 Nobel Prize for Literature. The volume includes an original address by Walcott, as well as a discussion between Walcott and fellow Caribbean writer E.A. Markham. The essays are a selection of papers from the international conference at the Sorbonne Nouvelle on 17-18 March 2006 in which Walcott participated. Many of the contributors are specialists in the field of Caribbean literature and acknowledged Walcott specialists, and they discuss issues such as intertextuality, polyphony, performance, writing and reading practices, poetry, language, and society, as well as questions of reception in an age of an increasingly transnational readership.

  • 29.1 2006 – Strange/Stranger

    • Abstract: Couverture du n° 29-1   2006, Strange/Stranger Commonwealth Essays and Studies 29.1 (Strange/Stranger) deals with such widespread notions as “strangeness”,  “otherness” , “the other”,  “foreignness”  and “the foreign”. This topic is central to the current preoccupations of scholars in the field of postcolonial literature and theory and may explain the wide geographical range of the articles concerned. These in effect cover every major region relating to the former British Empire: Asia (5), Africa (1), Australia (2), the Caribbean (2), and Canada (1). It also explains the variety of approaches taken by contributors, whether thematic (the use of sex and myth as paradigms of postcolonial tensions), formal (the postmodernist recourse to textual recycling or dialogism), or socio-cultural (the anthology as a meta-literary statement revelatory of the postcolonial writer’s problematic relationship with the literary tradition he has inherited). One may also mention the variety of genres and forms selected for consideration, extending from the fore-mentioned anthologies to the biographical text, passing through the novel, the short story, the verse fable and poetry.

  • 30.1 2007 – Behind the Scenes

    • Abstract: Couverture du n° 30-1   2007, Behind the Scenes Commonwealth Essays and Studies 30.1 (“Behind the Scenes”) considers the novel as a stage and explores strategies of avoidance, ambiguity, and irony as ways to skirt censorship – be it Freudian or political. The studies revisit Fanon’s concept of white mask, address filmic illusion in the world of Bollywood, or problematize the literary codes of realism in a postcolonial context.

  • 44.2 2022 – Alexis Wright

    • Abstract: This special issue on Alexis Wright’s work includes ten academic articles, seven of which focus on Wright’s Carpentaria (2006), while three discuss the author’s two other novels – Plains of Promise (1997) and The Swan Book (2013) – and oeuvre as a whole. The issue also contains art and poetry by Australian Indigenous creative artists, as well as the reprint of a review of Carpentaria and a reflexive essay on translating Wright’s works into Chinese. From the centrality of Indigenous epistemologies in Wright’s oeuvre to her narrative creativity, representation of country, commitment to a sovereignty of the mind, humour, and refusal of genres, the various contributions to the special issue propose original analyses and approaches to better understand Wright’s nuanced, complex novels and non-fiction works.

  • 31.1 2008 – Resurgence

    • Abstract: Couverture du n° 31-1   2008, Resurgence Commonwealth Essays and Studies 31.1 (“Resurgence”) adopted the topic of the 48th SAES congress in Orléans in May 2008 where Jane Urquhart was guest of honour. A workshop was devoted to her writing, as reflected in the section on cultural resurgence and the role of symbolic objects in this process in Canadian literature. The issue also explores the resurgence of history and the metamorphoses it leads to, and the impact of the resurgence of the past on artistic creation.

  • 32.1 2009 – Essays and Trials

    • Abstract: Couverture du n° 32-1   2009, Essays and Trials Commonwealth Essays and Studies 32.1 (“Essays and Trials”) is an issue devoted to the protean genre of the essay, deployed in both scientific and literary discourse in often fluid, hybrid ways. Its potential to take on multiple forms of interstitiality allows it to interrogate concerns at the heart of both postcolonialism and postmodernism, namely the conjunctive and disjunctive relations of authority and authorship, and the dynamics of derivation, transformation, and deviation.

  • 32.2 2010 – Mutations

    • Abstract: Couverture du n° 32-2   2010, Mutations Commonwealth Essays and Studies 32.2 (“Mutations”) contributes to recent interrogations concerning postcolonial theory in mutation, unravelling and rearticulating itself within the contexts of an increasingly globalized world system. The contributors address the need to unsettle traditional postcolonial frameworks and engage with the frictional border-zones consubstantial with models of circulation. The articles engage with texts which do not fit into the standard “writing back” model of postcolonial intertextuality nor partake in a conventionalized anxiety of influence. The authors consider the complex dialogism ranging from (af)filiation to self-reflexive hypertextuality. They set up a fruitful dialogue on the mystique of traditional culture and cultural continuity, foregrounding the intra-cultural fissures which challenge the social cohesion of older notions of mapping.
