CALLIOPE International Conference
SPEAKING AS THE ‘OTHER’: Coloniality, Subalternity, and Embodied Political Articulations (late 18th – early 20th centuries)
Welcome to the homepage of the conference Speaking as the 'Other' organised by the ERC-funded project CALLIOPE: Vocal Articulations of Parliamentary Identity and Empire at the University of Helsinki. This multidisciplinary conference seeks to examine performative, embodied and acoustic histories of articulating political representation and colonial ‘otherness’. To that end, we intend to extend the focus of the conference beyond established Anglophone analyses of the metropole and colony, and indeed, beyond the disciplinary pre-eminence of Anglophone postcolonial studies.
Dates and venue:
The hybrid conference will take place on 10-12 May 2021. It is planned to be held live at Metsätalo Lecture Hall 4, Unioninkatu 40, University of Helsinki, and online. Depending on the course of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the conference can be transformed into a virtual format only. Further information will follow in due course.
