What Postcolonial Theory Doesn't Say

A conference at the University of York, UK, 3-5 July 2010, in partnership with the University of Leeds and Manchester Metropolitan University

Postcolonial Studies is firmly ensconced in the Anglophone metropolitan academy: the field has its own specialised journals, academic posts, postgraduate courses, and dedicated divisions within learned bodies. But how well have these configurations travelled to other locations, institutions and disciplines? What topics, questions and approaches remain unexplored? And what's 'theoretical' about postcolonial theory anyway?

ANARCHISM AND THE LITERARY IMAGINATION

Chapters are sought for the collection Anarchism and the Literary Imagination. This volume examines historical and contemporary engagements of anarchism and literary production. Anarchists have used literary production to express opposition to values and relations characterizing advanced capitalist (and socialist) societies while also expressing key aspects of the alternative values and institutions proposed within anarchism. Among favoured themes are anarchist critiques of corporatization, prisons and patriarchal relations as well as explorations of developing anarchist perspectives on revolution, ecology and ecocriticism, polysexuality and mutual aid.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sharon Marcus; Professor of Literature, Columbia University

As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

Lessons in Sympathy in 19th-Century British Literature (9/30/2009; NeMLA, 4/7-11/2010)

In Emile, Jean-Jacques Rousseau insists on a long delay in the introduction of books, especially books of fictional literature, into Emile's educational process. For Rousseau, Emile's premature acquisition of knowledge of social relations through fictional literature harms his moral education by promoting a misdirected understanding of human relationships. This panel investigates various ways in which nineteenth-century British literature approached the moral/immoral function of literature, focusing particularly on the relationship between reading and sympathy.

This panel will interrogate the upsurge of the new(?)
homicidal/suicidal religiosity in the West. Some possible perspectives are literary, sociological, artistic, or historical, and interdisciplinary approaches are always
welcome. Some possible ideas, not intended to restrict panelists but rather to spur thinking on a few possible approaches:

- the suicide bomber as Kierkegaardian hero

- religious mania as a reaction to/ byproduct of Western modernity

- leaps of technological faith: the new high-tech cargo cults (Heaven's Gate, etc)

- the faith of Abraham vs the faith of Andrea Yates
