Abstract and Keywords

This article comments on postcolonialism and its relationship to global studies. It discusses the implications of global capitalism for identity, nationalism, and (neo)colonial power and the emergence of new regionalisms as both effects and responses to global capitalism. It also considers subalternity in the age of globalization and the ways in which gender, class, and regionalism link global flows of people and capital. Furthermore, it discusses neoliberal discourse concerning China’s entry into global capitalism, as well as the connection between regionalism and colonialism in the Pacific. The article focuses on the absence of the Middle East in discussions of a continental regionalism that obscures new regional configurations and concludes by highlighting the emergence of a complex global network dating back to the thirteenth century.

Keywords: postcolonialism, global studies, capitalism, new regionalisms, subalternity, globalization, China, colonialism, Pacific, Middle East
