Students and scholars of postcolonialism, as well as the generally curious, may be interested in Postcolonial Space, a site that aims "to offer free and open information on all aspects of postcolonial studies." Begun in 2002 as its founder Dr. Masood Raja's personal website, Postcolonial Space launched in its current incarnation in 2007 and has continued evolving since then. Here, visitors will find an array of resources on postcolonial studies with a particular emphasis on literature. Those new to this subject may like to begin by reading "What is Postcolonial Studies?" (found on the Postcolonial Space Blog). In the Postcolonial Resources section, visitors will find numerous items of interest, such as an extensive list of authors from postcolonial cultures (organized by geographic region), a PhD reading list for graduate students, and links to other websites and organizations that focus on postcolonial studies. The Digital Library section also has much to offer, including a glossary and webinars discussing topics such as Terry Eagleton's book Literary Theory. In addition to running Postcolonial Space, Raja is the editor of Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies and an associate professor of English at the University of North Texas. His course syllabi are available under Postcolonial Courses.
