DURRELL SCHOOL OF CORFU

CALL FOR SEMINAR PAPERS

'EMPIRE AND AFTERMATH: CORE AND PERIPHERY'

The Durrell School of Corfu will hold a seminar on the topic 'Empire and
Aftermath: Core and Periphery' at its Library and Study Centre in Corfu,
4-10 June 2006.

Introduction
The 400-year rule of the Ionian islands by the 'Serenissima' Republic of
Venice and the 50-year administration of the 'Septinsular Republic' of those
islands by Britain provide us with examples of strategic control of
Mediterranean communications by interests vested in the diplomatic and
commercial manipulation of trade routes and nodes of power.

This panel seeks papers examining the topic of transpacific
colonialisms/postcolonialisms. Questions and concerns can include but are
not limited to: How do practices or notions of colonialism or
postcolonialism travel across the Pacific? How do Asian and Asian
American travelers, writers, journalists, expatriates, laborers,
filmmakers, etc., represent themselves within contexts of
colonialism/postcolonialism, perhaps even redefining the relations that
constitute those very terms? How are representations of seemingly
localized colonial or postcolonial contexts affected by transpacific
social, political, and historical relations?
