The dissolution of the European colonial empires since the Second World War led to a shift in the locus of the production of knowledge about Asian and African cultures from the colonizers to the indigenous peoples themselves. The elocution of the cultures of the colonized and marginalized thus became a multivocal concern signified by the advocacy for continental, race, and colour identification, enriched by gender, sexuality, womanist, lesbian, gay and aging issues. Hegemonic metanarratives have been debunked. Emerging from this socially-predicated episteme is an advocacy for a political agenda that recommends affirmative diversity as the way forward in a multicultural world.
