Participation in Postcolonial Wor(l)ds - Postgraduate Conference

Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Participation both depends on and produces agency. Therefore, it is always embedded in power structures and power remains unequally distributed. Though empires are long gone, neo-colonial structures of domination continue to exploit the so-called Global South, to privilege Eurocentric knowledge traditions over non- Eurocentric knowledge, and to exclude racialized subjects or people and communities from erstwhile colonized countries from power positions. For decades, postcolonial subjects have worked against imperial forms of oppression. They continuously labor to create space for local and hitherto marginalized world views and experiences. Processes of (self-)translation produce spaces of articulation and enable participation.

T.S. Eliot called Ulysses ‘the most important expression which the present age has found; … a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape.’’ Indeed, after a century it is a book which is still read, discussed, translated, researched and which influences not only writers, but painters, musicians, philosophers, photographers, film directors.

We invite scholars and students from various fields to send proposals for a 15-minute paper with a creative approach towards any aspect of Joyce’s works.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

***ONE WEEK TO GO UNTIL ABSTRACT DEADLINE***

‘Borders. Everything begins with them, and all paths lead back to them. They are no longer merely a line of demarcation separating distinct sovereign entities. Increasingly, they are the name used to describe the organized violence that underpins both contemporary capitalism and our world order in general – the women, the men, and the unwanted children condemned to abandonment […] In fact, everything leads back to borders – these dead spaces of non-connection which deny the very idea of a shared humanity, of a planet, the only one we have, that we share together, and to which we are linked by the ephemerality of our common condition.’ - Achille Mbembe, Necropolitics, p. 99
