The conference aims to examine performative, embodied, and acoustic histories of articulating colonial “otherness.” By doing so, it seeks to explore alternative colonial histories of political representation, as (re)imagined, (re)configured and provincialized by the non-European other. To that end, the conference extends its focus beyond established Anglophone analyses of the metropole and colony, and indeed, beyond the disciplinary pre-eminence of Anglophone postcolonial studies.
Owing to the current world health situation, the conference will be held fully online from 10th-12th May 2021. Please view the full programme on the CIC2021 website!
Keynote speakers include Dr Arthur Asseraf (University of Cambridge), Associate Professor Barnita Bagchi (Utrecht University), Professor Ananya Jahanara Kabir (King’s College London), and Professor Sophie White (University of Notre Dame). In addition, the programme comprises two guest sessions, namely a musical intermezzo by sonic-based artist-researcher, Sergio Castrillón, and a special edition of Le Thinnai Kreyol, featuring Oslo-based Franco-Pondicherrian author, Ari Gautier, in conversation with Ananya Jahanara Kabir.
The conference registration is free of charge for everyone, regardless of the duration of attendance, and can be completed via our online registration tool on the CIC2021 website.
