What is the future of postcolonial studies?
The Postcolonial Forum at Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland
seeks to encourage work in postcolonial studies and would like to announce
an essay competition for graduate students (MA/PhD). Essays should address
the question of the future of postcolonial studies: what is the relevance
of postcolonial studies, how can it be useful, and how should it progress?
Writers may consider the question through the use of specific case studies
from their own research, although they must address the question in a way
that will be meaningful to those outside their discipline.
