About the special issue

The idea that postcolonialism — the domain of inquiry into and critique of colonialism and its aftermath — and psychology have much to say to each other may be met with a number of negative reactions, ranging from doubtfulness to indignity from scholars in academic spheres. It is therefore worthwhile to address why this is the case. This special issue is a collection of several in-depth essays that looks at various aspects of the relation between colonialism and its psychic legacies, culture and society in the postcolonial era — and psychology and psychoanalysis.
