Postcolonial perspectives on „development”. This article engages with the relationship between postcolonial and development studies. After sketching the two fields and their differences, it identifies four analytical strategies typical to postcolonial studies and examines a number of postcolonial works which deal with „development“. As postcolonial studies are often reproached for neglecting material practices, this aspect of the works in question is highlighted. While some of the works are not at all, or are only superficially concerned with material practices in development policy, others prove that postcolonial studies are most productive when taking them into account.
