This panel will address the current crisis within postcolonial studies as an academic discipline. How is postcolonial studies relevant to current global and regional issues? How might the incorporation of postcolonial thought allow for a better understanding of our world? How should postcolonial thought be incorporated within the academy? Papers may address the relevance of postcolonial theory to issues of gender and sexuality, neocolonialism and imperialism, ethnicity, minority discourses, globalization, nationalism, politics, diplomacy, economics and war. They may also address postcolonial theory's relationship with other fields of study, such as ethnic studies, feminist studies, queer theory, religious studies, rhetorical studies, etc.
Abstracts should be 200-250 words, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 5, 2010.
