Postmodern and postcolonial intersections

Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:22am
University of Gafsa, Tunisia
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 28, 2018

This study day aims to bring researchers together to debate the postmodern and postcolonial intersections in literary and cultural studies. Grounded in contemporary postmodern and postcolonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the study day will attempt to explore the confluences of the two theoretical trends, the discursive spaces offered by the first to the second. In this regard, relations between the East and the West and how such relations are presented and re-represented in multifarious ways in the writing and re-writing of literary and cultural texts are investigated.

School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon


Herman Melville (1819-1891), sailor and writer, plowed the ocean as a tablet to be read, gazing at the white page where unfathomable characters surface to the eyes of the puzzled reader. “Captain” Walt Whitman (1819-1892), on the other hand, writing “in cabin’d ships at sea,” broke open and passed the divide between in- and out-of-doors, as he urged his book to “speed on.” Both were born 200 years ago.
