International Conference: What Postcolonial Theory Doesn't Say
July 3-5, 2010
Berrick Saul Building, University of York, UK
Programme details at http://www.york.ac.uk/depts/engl/events/forthcoming.htm.
This conference is the fruit of collaboration across three universities (York, Leeds and Manchester Metropolitan) aimed at evaluating postcolonial theory, its impact and aporias. Over the course of three days, we will examine these and related questions through a set of interdisciplinary interventions aimed at assessing not only what postcolonial theory (still) doesn’t say, but also what we would like it to say: in other words, how we might best put the field’s cultural and institutional capital to use. Our intent, therefore, is not to repeat well-rehearsed debates about the field’s various failings, but rather to advance the discussion by identifying common goals and areas of enquiry.
