Corporate Ingression - A New Approach to Contemporary Anglophone Postcolonial Literature

posted on 25.07.2018, 11:21 by LIANNE MARGARETHA VAN KRALINGEN
This research in literary and cultural studies has developed a new approach to reading postcolonial literature, named ‘corporate ingression.’ I have analysed three English literary texts by looking at how they explore the influence of corporate power over local communities worldwide and throughout time. Corporate ingression describes, firstly, how a major corporation can influence the social, economic and political structure of a community, and secondly, how it can influence the culture of such a society. In my research I show how this concept is relevant for analysing the communities and processes these novels explore.
