Adopting and Adapting a Theory: Postcolonial Studies in the Field of Romanian Contemporary Literature and Culture

This study presents postcolonial studies as a mode of reading and interpreting Romanian contemporary literature and culture. To do so, I made use of Edward W. Said’s concept, travelling theory, in order to show that it is not necessary to find similarities between (post)communism and (post)colonialism in order to use the latter’s methods in exploring the former’s cultural realities. Therefore, in this paper my aim is not to demonstrate that postcommunism is merely an East-European facet of postcolonialism, but rather to show that postcolonialism can be employed as a tool to explore and analyze it. Furthermore, I attempt to show why it is useful to adopt and adapt postcolonial studies to the field of Romanian post-Soviet cultural and literary studies.

Keywords: postcolonial studies, postcommunism, postcommunist Romanian literature, travelling theory, EastEuropean postcolonialism
