Her life’s work is to show how there’s nothing “post-” about postcolonialism, and that the impact of historical and oppressive conquest continue to manifest in the ideologies, cultures, languages, literature, human behaviors, inter- and intrapersonal relationships, and spiritual practices we have today.
