postcolonialism (See Map): the social, political, economic, and cultural practices which arise 
in response and resistance to colonialism. 

Problems in the term:

a misnomer because decolonization is impossible; 
a monster (like the term Third World) because it covers too many areas with all sorts of differences; should be distinguished from the "post" in postmodernism. (from Postcolonialism page in Literary Criticism Databank)
