Postcolonialism in interdisciplinary perspective

Danford Room - 224 on second floor of the Arts Building
Wednesday 17 May 2017 (09:30-19:00)

The ‘Postcolonialism in Interdisciplinary Perspective’ conference creates a platform for postgraduate students to discuss emerging concerns within Postcolonial Studies across a range of geographic and disciplinary boundaries, including Area Studies, History, Literature and Cultural Studies.

This one-day event 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.

There are a limited number of spaces available and tickets will be issued on a firstcome,
first-served basis.

The funding for this event was kindly provided by the AHRC Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership, with which five of the organizers are affiliated. We would like to thank Professor Charlotte Hempel for her support with the application. We would also like to acknowledge the Department of African Studies and Anthropology and the staff on the department for their advice. Special thanks are owed to Dr Benedetta Rossi, Dr Insa Nolte, Dr Kate Skinner and Dr Rebecca Jones. We would like to express our gratitude to all of the panellists for their stimulating contributions.
