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.
In 2015, the University of Edinburgh Press launched a multivolume series of scholarly, refereed anthologies entitled ReFocus. Edited by Robert Singer (CUNY Graduate Center, Liberal Studies) and Gary D. Rhodes (Queens University, Belfast), each book focuses on a critically overlooked American film director who worked in the studio system, independent cinema, experimental filmmaking, or documentary tradition. The volumes to be published this year focus on Preston Sturges, Amy Heckerling, Delmer Daves, Ida Lupino, and Budd Boetticher.

Post-conflict territories: representations and reconfigurations
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. Farah Mendlesohn, Anglia Ruskin University, UK
The highly-prolific and well-acclaimed South African author Sindiwe Magona has been a voice for human rights and justice throughout her three decades as a writer. Her many works (including two novels, four plays, two collections of stories, two autobiographies, over 120 children's books, one biography, and one collection of poetry) demonstrate a common preoccupation with the injustices and indignities faced by South Africans both during and after apartheid. Whatever the genre, Magona focuses primarily on the experiences of women and children and provides a glimpse into domestic and familial side of life in South Africa.
