deadline for submissions:

The University of British Columbia’s annual English Graduate Conference cordially invites submissions under the themes of Disruption, Resistance, and Resilience.

In the wake of years of political, social, and ecological crises that have disrupted, disoriented, and displaced populations across the globe, modes of resistance and resilience have emerged to confront the disarray. From the rise of Trump and “fake news” to the latest IPCC report on the impending irrevocability of climate change, humanities studies and art practices have stepped up to the challenge to revolutionize their age-old roles of disruption and resilience-making on a much larger global stage.

Alterglobal Politics: Postcolonial Theory in the Era of the Anthropocene and the Nonhuman

Although they are often spoken of in the same breath, theories of the Anthropocene and the nonhuman turn vary in their emphases. The Anthropocene introduces a new ‘universal’ subject – the human species as a global geophysical agent. Theories of the nonhuman, however, seek to displace anthropocentric foci – the ‘human’ is viewed as a part of a complex assemblage co-constituted by many others. Postcolonial theory has, in general, been sceptical of both trajectories. On the one hand, postcolonial theory and theorists remain generally suspicious of the putative universal subject (the ‘human species’) that purportedly impacts this era of anthropogenic climate-change catastrophically.
