British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference - February 14-18, 2022

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 - 4:12pm
British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2021


The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — will hold its first virtual conference, and calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

In the 31 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.

Fragile Ecologies and Discontinuous Modernities

In cosmogonical texts like the Navajo Myth, the search for an ecology of inter-species relations is threatened by the meeting of the horizons of the sky and the earth which unhinges the stable cosmos. In narratives of climate dystopias like Bruno Arpaia's Something Out There (2016) and ecological parables like Wu Ming-Yi's The Man with Compound Eyes (2011), the threats of expulsions from habitable places and the severing of human relationships are explored within apocalyptic frameworks of planetary harm.
