This one-day interdisciplinary colloquium aims to explore the interlocking and myriad intersections between race, biopolitics and violence in Francophone postcolonial culture, politics and thought, considering Caribbean, African and American contexts. The day will include a number of papers intended to spark in-depth discussion.  The colloquium will conclude with a round-table and summing-up.

This project is organised in the framework of the European Commission/FP7 Marie Curie Research Project ‘Caribbean Biopolitics of Literature’ by Principal Investigator Dr Louise Hardwick and Marie Curie Research Fellow Dr Alessandro Corio.
