2 - 4 June 2011
The 22nd annual conference of the Association for the Study of the New Literatures in English will continue some of the discussions of our previous conferences about space and locations, migration and its reasons, cultural and linguistic communities, as well as academic and institutional concerns.
In Hanover, we shall concentrate on specific regions and communities, approaching them from various disciplinary perspectives and in an explicitly self-reflexive manner.
The conference will focus on two interrelated issues, one thematic and one methodological. It brings together scholars from different academic fields who share an interest in the comparative reflection of their respective disciplinary and individual methodologies.
The conference will include workshops on interdisciplinary Postcolonial Studies in teaching and research (both in school and at university) and on interdisciplinary Postcolonial Studies in the new BA and MA programmes.
It will also provide participants, whatever their level of academic qualification, with the opportunity to present work in progress in the “under construction” and poster sessions.
The call for papers will close on 15 January 2011.
