Epigraph: The paradox of the vampires is that., precisely as 'living dead', they are far more alive than us, mortified [as we are] by the symbolic network...The real 'living dead' are us, common mortals, condemned to vegetate in the Symbolic. - Slavoj Zizek, 1991.
Epigraph: The colonial, or postcolonial, model has collapsed. In its place we have a new world order in which there will soon be one global conversation with limited participation open to all, and full participation open to none. In this new world oder nobody will feel fully at home. - Caryl Phillips, 2001.
