Kusnira - Postcolonial Studies in Slovakia and Hungary

Jaroslav Kušnír

This overview article analyses the research in the field of postcolonial studies in Slovakia and Hungary and its institutional representation in both countries. The author of this article argues that in both countries the postcolonial theories have been mostly applied to the study of Irish,Canadian, Australian, and African literatures and cultures and mostly by scholars based at the universities’ English Departments; that the application of postcolonial theories in the study of both Slovak and Hungarian literatures and cultures have been rather marginal; and that a research in this field has rather been based outside English departments.
