Postcolonialism in Interdisciplinary Perspective
Wed 17 May 2017, 09:00 – 20:00 BST
'Postcolonialism in Interdisciplinary Perspective’
The conference will showcase postgraduate research investigating postcolonialism during the 20th and 21st centuries, from a range of disciplinary and geographical perspectives. As well as providing a graduate platform for discussing the state of the art and ways forward in postcolonial studies, the event will provide postgraduates with the opportunity to present research and to receive feedback in a friendly and constructive environment.
More broadly, the conference aims to foster a community of postgraduate researchers who are interested in postcolonial studies, and to provide them with the opportunity to become aware of cutting-edge research in their field and to orient their own work within that context.
The day will consist of five themed panels of postgraduate presentations:
- The Postcolonial Political-Economy: Resource Struggles
- Exploring Exploitation: The Environment and Ecocriticism
- Travel and Return: Identity, Belonging and Self-Representation through Image and Text
- Structuring Inequality: Gender, Sexuality and Struggle in the Postcolony
- ‘Inside’ and ‘Outside’ Institutions: Religious Experience and Encounter
The conference starts at 9 am with registration in the Fage Library (across the hall from the Danford Room), and the Welcome Address is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am.
Free refreshments, lunch and a wine reception will be provided.
