In Postcolonial Biology, Deepika Bahri investigates how minds and bodies have been shaped by colonial contact, to create deeply embedded hierarchies among the colonized. Moving beyond “North/South” thinking, Bahri reframes the questions of postcolonial bodies to address all societies, whether developed or developing, and brings an important new focus to the field of postcolonial studies.
