This book analyses the applicability of postcolonial theories and contemporary issues, and also revisits previously tackled cultural, social and literary phenomena. The contributions examine contemporary social, economic and cultural processes. The authors look back at older cultural texts, coming from either former colonies or former colonisers. They furthermore refer to the fact that theories of postcolonialism are currently more frequently applied to study countries originally not classified as colonial. They attempt to define and explain the experiences of the native peoples of colonial territories in various historical situations of dependence.

Education as a Tool for Creating Hybrid Anglo-Welsh Identity in 19th- and 20th-century Welsh Novels
Abstract: The present article, which is an attempt at a postcolonial reading of two Welsh novels: Feet in Chains (1936) by Kate Roberts and The Life of Rebeca Jones (2012) by Angharad Price, focuses on the process of identity transformation in the characters as a result of their English educational experience and argues that the process is that of displacement of their Welsh identity and the gradual emergence of a hybrid Anglo-Welsh identity.
Key words: education, Wales, hybrid identity, Welsh literature, marginalisation.
