Giulia Champion

Giulia Champion's research looks at literature from former British, French, Portuguese and Spanish colonies in most of the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as parts of Africa, which aims to challenge "colonial histories" through adapting canonical cultural productions through the use of the technique of “literary cannibalism”. This is done by displacing cannibalism as an act of savagery projected onto former colonial people to its use to identify and expose the consumption and exploitation of people and land by European and North American colonial and imperial powers. Giulia’s research focuses on postcolonial environmental studies and decolonial theory.
