The Institute of Postcolonial Studies is an autonomous educational institution located in Melbourne, Australia. It has linkages to major universities and research bodies both in Australia and internationally. The Institute's book series Writing Past Colonialism aims to communicate the unique intellectual excitement and academic excellence that characterize the Institute to a broader global constituency. The leitmotiv of the series is the idea of difference--qdifferences between culture and politics, as well as differences in ways of seeing and the sources that can be drawn upon. In this sense, the series is postcolonial. Yet the space the Institute hopes to open up is one resistant to new orthodoxies, one that allows for alternative and contesting formulations.Though grounded in studies relating to the formerly colonized world, the series seeks to extend contemporary global analyses. Wide-ranging and engaging, Selves in Question considers the various ways in which auto/biographical accounts situate and question the self in contemporary southern Africa.Interviews on Southern African Auto/Biography Judith LA¼tge Coullie ... and Rousseaua#39;s Confessions are emblematic.56 It is also the belief propagated by Georges Gusdorf (1980) in his influential essay aquot;Conditions and Limits of Autobiography.
