The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

We welcome a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates. Thus we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and/or cross-cultural panel proposals.

The Country and the City Rebooted

updated: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:43pm
ACLA Seminar
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

In his 1973 classic, The Country and the City, Raymond Williams noted an ideological divide between the country and the city, stating: “powerful, hostile associations have also developed: on the city as a place of noise, worldliness and ambition; on the country as a place of backwardness, ignorance, limitation. A contrast between country and city, as fundamental ways of life, reaches back into classical times” (1). Williams seeks to bridge this divide by demonstrating the ways in which both country and city were bound together in a complex system of rural exploitation. Nevertheless, today the ideological divide between rural and urban is as strong as ever, as highlighted by the recent U.S. presidential election cycle.
