Reading After Empire: Local, Global and Diaspora Audiences

An international conference to be hosted by the University of Stirling,
3-5 September 2008

How should we read colonial and postcolonial texts? Is reading an act of
resistance, or the domestication of difference? Does postcolonial studies
posit an ‘ideal reader’? What (if anything) are the differences between
local, national and transnational audiences? How can we ever adequately
interpret the imperial archive?

Unsettling Borders, Healing in the Borderlands

“Borders are set up to define places that are safe and unsafe, to
distinguish us from them. A border is a dividing line, a narrow strip
along a steep edge. A borderland is a vague and undetermined place
created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary.” (Anzaldúa,
Borderlands/ La Frontera 25)
