Publicada originalmente en 1993, Cultura e imperialismo es una obra indispensable que restablece el diálogo entre la literatura y la vida, y permite comprender uno de los procesos históricos y culturales más complejos de la modernidad. En el siglo XIX y principios del XX, mientras las grandes potencias se esforzaban en construir y mantener imperios que se extendían desde Australia hasta las islas del Caribe, Occidente fue el protagonista incontestable de un esplendor cultural que vio nacer obras maestras tales como la Aida de Verdi, Mansfield Park de Jane Austen, El corazón de las tinieblas de Conrad o El extranjero de Camus, por citar solo algunas. Con todo, y a pesar de la magnitud del fenómeno imperialista que caracterizó esa época, la mayoría de críticos literarios y culturales nunca prestaron la suficiente atención a su influencia sobre la cultura. Mediante un brillante análisis, Edward W. Said examina estas obras junto con la de escritores de la talla de W. B. Yeats, Chinua Achebe o Salman Rushdie, para demostrar como la periferia sujeta al orden impuesto por la metrópoli supo crear su propia cultura vigorosa, opositora y resistente. Críticas: «Obra imprescindible.» José María Ridao, El País «La originalidad y la eficacia de este estudio se basan en el método. Said trabaja sobre las obras individuales, leyéndolas primero como grandiosos productos de la imaginación creadora e interpretativa, y luego mostrándolas dentro de la relación entre cultura e imperio.» Elvira Huelbes, El Mundo «Pivote entre dos mundos, solo Said ha sido capaz de advertir que la apacible rutina de Mansfield Park, la mansión en la novela de Jane Austen, se mantiene con el trabajo esclavo de una isla del Caribe. Sin imperio, proclama Said, no existiría la novela clásica europea tal como la conocemos.» Terry Eagleton, The Guardian «La crítica literaria que intenta tender puentes entre el arte y la política tiene que aprender mucho, si no todo, de este impresionante diálogo de Said consigo mismo.» Camille Paglia, The Washington Post

A organização deste livro é um gesto rumo a este desafio: compreender como o modelo de realização cultural do imperialismo americano se tornou a metonímia da própria cultura planetária atual e, assim, fornecer subsídios críticos para analisar o estado atual da teoria e da produção culturais predominantes dentro e fora da Universidade, no contemporâneo, além de observar e evidenciar como a caça às bruxas do nacionalismo e do marxismo revolucionários, de base anti-imperialista, concebida como o lugar do rigor, tem sido, na verdade, a extrema traição ao rigor que realmente importa: o do pensamento e da criação comprometidos com o fim da barbárie coletiva burguesa, de onde seja possível falar em rigor da práxis e da práxis do rigor com um mesmo movimento rumo à justiça dos e nos povos, quando não submetidos por soberanos, por oligarquias, por imperialismos.

Taboos are expressive indicators of the location of a society in its cultural history. Linguistic taboos in particular can be approached via euphemisms, which are observed and interpreted here in a comparison between French and Italian. Their raison d'etre is explained from the perspective of cultural and mental history, and from the perspective of the history of motifs they are anchored in fields ranging from the magical and religious via the ethical and aesthetic and the politically correct through to an "ethics without morality." In this, the sources, motives and functions of the phenomenon of the euphemism are considered separately and then brought together in an overall interpretation. "

The Future is Now: A New Look at African Diaspora Studies is an exciting collection of essays representative of new voices in this ever-expanding field. Writing in English, Spanish, French, and Haitian Creole, the volume’s contributors look at the fields of art, literature, film, and music. From the Hispanophone, Francophone, and Anglophone Caribbean to the United States and Europe, the scholars here interrogate themes of memory, power, gender, identity, race, and religion. In so doing, they uncover forgotten episodes of history previously lost to hegemonic tellings of the past. Here, readers will find studies on Haitian documentary, Puerto Rican art, Trinidadian calypso, Colombian poetry, the African-American novel, and African photography and collage. The Future Is Now serves as a celebration of the contributions made by peoples of African descent, providing a glimpse at the breadth of cultural offerings to be found throughout the African Diaspora in the Americas and Europe.

The Cultures of Italian Migration allows the adjective 'Italian' to qualify people's movements along diverse trajectories and temporal dimensions. Discussions on migrations to and from Italy meet in that discursive space where critical concepts like 'home,' 'identity,' 'subjectivity,' and 'otherness' eschew stereotyping. This volume demonstrates that interpretations of old migrations are necessary in order to talk about contemporary Italy. New migrations trace new non linear paths in the definition of a multicultural Italy whose roots are unmistakably present throughout the centuries. Some of these essays concentrate on topics that are historically long-term, such as emigration from Italy to the Americas and southern Pacific Ocean. Others focus on the more contemporary phenomena of immigration to Italy from other parts of the world, including Africa. This collection ultimately offers an invitation to seek out new and different modes of analyzing the migratory act.
