Postcolonialism, and Their Convergence in Contemporary Globalization,"
seminar at the 2006 ACLA: American Comparative Literature Association
Annual Conference, Princeton University, March 23-26, 2006. The goal of this seminar is to reflect upon the
dehumanizing and uprooting capacity of language through the concept of
"exapropriation," a term coined by Derrida in his later works. The term
exappropriation, when applied to language, expresses the double move of how
language puts the human in place (hands it the qualities that are proper to it, appropriation) and at the same time

decolonization or postcoloniality resist or transform the epistemological
"truth quest" conventionalized in the structure of the detective narrative?
Can the detective novel operate independently of national, imperial, or
global ideologies? How have authors worked with the figure of the detective
in ways that complicate the narrative or ideological stances typically
associated with modernism and postmodernism? And what happens when authors

black peoples and cultures in the 21st century. We seek to explore the

limitations of current postcolonial theorizing for the black experience.
