BREVITY - Graduate Student Conference at Western University (Canada), March 6 - 8, 2014

"Cuando despertó, el dinosaurio todavía estaba allí" [When (s)he woke up, the dinosaur was still there]. This is the entirety of a 1959 short story by Augusto Monterroso. It could easily fit in a Twitter status update almost three times over.

Brevity can be interpreted in many different ways – from a sense of briefness and urgency to an economization of words. At times, brevity may be perceived as superficial or frivolous, except to those of Spartan sensibilities. To others, such as Polonius, "brevity is the soul of wit [/ And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, / I will be brief: your noble son is mad]" (II, ii).

Questions of temporality have preoccupied postcolonial studies, from how we periodize the "postcolonial" as Kwame Anthony Appiah raises, to how we perceive time in relationship to persistent colonial structures as Ann Laura Stoler proposes, to Dipesh Chakrabarty's prescription to reconsider the relationship between time and linear histories.
