CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol. II, Issue 2 (June 2017)

updated: 
Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 10:12am
Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 7, 2017

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.

Chèr(e)s collègues,

C'est une raison de plus de soumettre une proposition au colloque, qui s'intitule cette année "Fabrications of Reality - Fabriques du réel", et qui aura lieu le 24 mars 2017. La professeure Kyoo Lee de John Jay College sera notre invitée d'honneur.

Le colloque du département est une excellente occasion de présenter une première conférence, ou de tester les eaux pour un nouveau travail, ce, sans défrayer de coûts supplémentaires et dans un cadre convivial (que vous connaissez déjà bien).

Cordialement,

Votre comité organisateur
