The chapter traces the intersections but also divergences between postcolonial studies and critical agrarian studies. It is argued that if critical agrarian studies want to take seriously the specific setting of the postcolonial world, the insights of postcolonial approaches merit deeper engagement. The genealogies of postcolonial approaches as well as its main themes are presented, and questions of ontology and methodology are discussed to show how analyses that take the particularities of the postcolonial setting into account while staying grounded in the material realities of agrarian communities would profit from critically engaging with both approaches.
