Parody of Robert Frost's "Dust of Snow"

"Flakes of Snow"
An unruly crow
Shook down on he
The flakes of snow
From a hemlock tree.

Suddenly aware
But impact not made,
Fulfilled without care
There the bird was laid.

Performing Colonial Modernity - 18 & 19 May 2010

Friday, November 20, 2009 - 1:54pm
University of Edinburgh


Bringing together the University of Edinburgh's world-leading Centre for African Studies, Centre of South Asian Studies, and Department of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, this conference seeks to create an intellectual forum in which to explore the entanglement of colonial encounters with attempts to realise recognisably modern regimes of state power and social control.

The organisers wish to encourage re-appraisals of both colonialism and modernity from POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS and EARLY-CAREER RESEARCHERS.

We leave it to the imaginations of prospective contributors—and the historical actors appearing in them—to conceptualise the two phenomena and their relationship.

Academy for the Study of Britishness, University of Huddersfield

As issues of nationalism, identity, and what it means to be 'British' continue to affect the cultural and political landscape of Britain itself, its impact on the islands that share (or have shared) a cultural heritage with the United Kingdom has become new ground for academics.
