Postcolonial studies as a way of reclaiming history from the perspective of the colonised continues to uncover the myriad fraught legacies of colonialism. The emergence of newer interdisciplinary areas of inquiry, such as climate change, has further revealed tangled legacies of colonialism that continue to persist. The burgeoning field of postcolonial print culture studies, in turn, has been bringing to the fore a fascinating terrain of production, circulation and consumption of print in colonial contexts that is particularly enriching our knowledge of anticolonial resistance in various ways.  This conference aims to bring together academic work in some of the newer sub-fields of postcolonial inquiry with attention to continuities.

Rhetoric After Identification

Edited by David R. Gruber (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) & Jason Kalin (DePaul University)

 

Rhetorical identification seeks a common ground of existence in which divided individuals can mediate their differences. Perhaps, for this reason, either explicitly or implicitly, identification has become a commonplace of rhetorical theory and criticism. As Diane Davis (2010) writes, “Identification is not simply rhetoric’s most fundamental aim; it’s also and therefore rhetorical theory’s most fundamental problem” (p. 33). Any rhetoric, it seems, must pass through rhetorical identification.

[EXTENDED] Poison in Popular Culture: Representations, Aesthetics, and Meanings

Lorna Piatti-Farnell, Auckland University of Technology

From natural to synthetic, from accidental to administered, poison is entangled with our human history, and its presence has a lot to say about not only our customs and laws, but also our ways of storytelling. Poison likes to adapt itself to situation: the definition of what poison even ‘is’ changes according to time and place, and to the cultural groups and sub-groups that are being consulted. Poison is malleable, mutating, and culturally slippery.  In its ability to conquer the imagination, poison is a crafty narrative weaver. From Shakespeare’s plays to Flaubert’s Madame Bovary and Eco’s The Name of the Rose, from iconic cinematic examples such The Princess Bride to global phenomena such as J.K.
