On the Cover

European colonialism and its aftermath dominate modern understandings of time. Its onset forms an indelible boundary between premodern and modern; its crescendo, the boundary between early modernity and recent history. Postcolonial realities circumscribe the memories available to us and the histories, real or fictional, we can write. If not addressed directly and forcefully, legacies of colonialism may even dictate the limits of our possible futures.
