Colonial and Postcolonial Spaces: an Interdisciplinary Conference

6-7 September 2007

Kingston University, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, England

Call for Papers

The issue of space, both as located place and abstract notion, is central to
the concerns of both colonial and postcolonial study. 'Colonial and
Postcolonial Spaces' aims to investigate the diverse ways in which colonial
and postcolonial cultures have engaged with and/or can be explored via the
concept of 'space'. This is an interdisciplinary conference, and the
organisers welcome papers that deal with colonial and/or postcolonial spaces
from any theoretical approach or discipline or from any historical period.
Themes and issues might include, but are not limited to:

- representations of boundaries/borders/crossings
- the connections between colonial and postcolonial spaces, abstract or
- colonial and/or postcolonial geographies
- aesthetics and artistic space
- the relevance of theoretical spatial models to colonial and/or
postcolonial study
- individual 'spaces' such as journeys, nations, bodies, landscapes, built
spaces, and their re-imagining in colonial and/or postcolonial contexts

Proposals of 300 words, along with a short biography, should be submitted by
sending an email attachment (MS Word) to

The deadline for proposals is June 31st 2007
