        Without a doubt, the response from the culture sectors in New Orleans
following Hurricane Katrina was one of the most striking narratives of the
storm. Cries from all over the country arose in the weeks after Katrina,
issuing forth clarion calls to save New Orleans’ culture, and the past two
years have seen an explosion of local, regional, and national efforts
intended to support the musical, artistic, culinary, performative, and
architectural industries. Some of these efforts have been modest individual

Postcolonialism and the ‘Hit’ of the Real
March 6th- 8th, 2008 at New York University

Call for Papers
How valid, in retrospect, is the founding claim of the postcolonial that it
offers a different view of the real?

If the world outside the west had been understood through traditions of
western representation which ignored the reality of what was actually
there, silencing different cultures, epistemologies, and the lives that
were lived in them, how successfully has postcolonial studies intervened to
enable the former subjects of Western representations to determine the
representation of their own realities?
