Example text

4. Comparing it to a synonymous concept captured visually in René Magritte’s famous 1933 painting La condition humaine, Dubow proposes that: ‘the picturesque enacts nothing less than the notion of present sight as “seeing through” a surrounding referent: a view of nature recognised via a background stock of perceptual knowledge’ (Dubow: 96). 5. This is a critical point in respect of the position of the creole elites in Latin America’s own experience of colonialism. For more on this see Moraña et al.

Nevertheless, insofar as the contact zone persists, it does not mean that the ‘here and now’ is necessarily postcolonial or post-imperial. As Stanley observes, it is not only that the vestiges of colonial structures endure in the contemporary period but also that ‘colonial’ is itself a complex term which has taken different forms in different times and places. Indeed, what it meant in the context of her own case study – South Africa – changed in a relatively short period. 5 Stanley’s insistence on the dynamic, transactional nature of the colonial experience is acknowledged elsewhere in Pratt’s study, however, in the process she calls transculturation, a phenomenon intrinsic to the contact zone.

Saldívar states that it is Pratt’s emphasis on the refashioning of traditions through cross-cultural contact, whereby ‘colonised subjects undertake to represent themselves in ways that engage with the coloniser’s own terms’, which informs his own deployment of autoethnography. For more on the complications of this term, see Butz 2009, who delineates five main types of autoethnography. See Lindsay, 2010: 92–114. 2 Disturbing Naipaul’s ‘Universal Civilization’: Islam, Travel Narratives and the Limits of Westernization Bidhan Roy In her seminal book Imperial Eyes (1992), Mary Louise Pratt argues that European colonial travel writing tells us more about European society than it does about the places the travel writers are visiting.
