Unsettling Oceania

Unsettling Oceania takes the pulse of the contemporary literature of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, 250 years after Captain Cook’s first voyage led to encounter and Western colonisation. The eleven articles gathered here reflect the ideological current of “decolonisation” in the white settler societies considered, and the will to deconstruct our understanding of modernity, in particular by foregrounding Indigenous perspectives and epistemologies. The essays adopt a dual ethical and aesthetic dimension to examine a literature that unsettles and decentres the established Western perspective on Oceania. The issue includes discussions of the evolution of the forms of belonging to the nation, the redefinition of Indigeneity, the impact of the Asia-Pacific context, the concern for the environment in times of climate change, and political and military decolonisation.
