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.

How to Make a Minority: Nationalism and Identity in the Postcolonial World

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:47pm
Maryam Wasif Khan/ ACLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

While much of the Anglophone world remains transfixed on the rise of the majoritarian right in the United States and Britain, little attention is paid to the nationalist politics that have defined daily existence in states such as Pakistan and India, or Egypt, Turkey and parts of the Middle East through the dialectic of minoritization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This panel is interested in the cultural apparatus—literature, media, museums etc.—that has become indispensable in the making of national identities in the postcolonial state. What are the systems of “social reference,” to use Edward Said’s phrase, that enable the construction of a volk, of the people who constitute the nation?
