Imperial archive: Literature and Postcolonialism
"This site provides information for all those interested in the influence of the British imperial process on literature of the 19th and 20th centuries. Using colonial discourse and post-colonial theory as a point of departure, some pages examine the British idea of 'Empire' and the colonial enterprise in a selected range of 19th-century authors and their work others consider 20th-century texts, in an attempt to understand how imperialism affected literary texts produced in Britain's former colonies."

Jouvert: a Journal of Postcolonial Studies
Jouvert describes itself as "a refereed, multi-disciplinary journal published on the World Wide Web tri-annually. It thus offers a widely accessible--indeed, international--forum for the interrogation of textual, cultural and political postcolonialisms." Each issue features 6-10 essays and articles, perhaps some creative writing, and an annotated list of books received.
