Between Metropole and Colony

Between Metropole and Colony

Rethinking a Research Agenda

(p.1) Between Metropole and Colony
Tensions of Empire

Ann Laura Stoler

University of California Press

This chapter examines how the colonies and metropole shared in the dialectics of inclusion and exclusion, and in what ways the colonial domain was distinct from the metropolitan one. It considers different approaches to colonial studies and investigates how a grammar of difference was once continuously and vigilantly crafted as people in colonies refashioned and contested European claims to superiority. The chapter argues that scholars need to attend more directly to the tendency of colonial regimes to draw a stark dichotomy of colonizer and colonized without falling into a Manichaean conception.

Keywords:   colonies, metropole, colonial domain, colonial studies, European superiority, dialectics of inclusion, exclusion
