CFP: Paper prize for graduate students

What is the future of postcolonial studies?

The Postcolonial Forum at Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland
seeks to encourage work in postcolonial studies and would like to announce
an essay competition for graduate students (MA/PhD). Essays should address
the question of the future of postcolonial studies: what is the relevance
of postcolonial studies, how can it be useful, and how should it progress?
Writers may consider the question through the use of specific case studies
from their own research, although they must address the question in a way
that will be meaningful to those outside their discipline.

Paper proposals are invited for an ALA session that explores Eudora

Welty's global connections in her work and / or with other writers

provocative global, postcolonial, and post-regional insights into Welty.

 

This ALA session, sponsored by the Eudora Welty Society, seeks to

explore new topics, conversations and conflicts by situating Eudora

Welty in global literary, historical and cultural contexts. What

happens to Welty's fiction when we take it out of the familiar

regional narratives of the South that have previously defined

it? How does a global comparative study of Welty answer her famous
