Postcolonial Studies Conferences
The 52nd Annual Preliminary Program can be found on the Annual Meeting page. The Preliminary Program will not be updated online. The Secretariat is hard at work finalizing the AM Final Program to be distributed onsite in New Orleans. All appropriate changes and corrections will be listed in the Final Program. If you have contacted the Secretariat with program changes or corrections you will receive a response on or before the corrections deadline of September 30. All correspondence will be responded to. We appreciate your patience as the Secretariat diligently works to bring you a productive and intellectually stimulating Annual Meeting this year.
Each spring, the AAS holds a four-day conference devoted to planned programs of scholarly papers, roundtable discussions and panel sessions on a wide range of issues in research and teaching, and on Asian affairs in general.
ACLALS conferences are hosted by various chapters of the association, every third year. The next conference will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus, from 6 to 11 June 2010. The event will be organised around the theme “Strokes Across Cultures”. The call for papers is available on the conference website.
British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference (Annual)
The annual British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the only annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses 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. There is no restriction to any particular political/cultural ideology or to specific critical practices, however fashionably current. Rather, we welcome and seek to encourage a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates.
The avowed aim (or “mission”) of the conference, then, is to be interdisciplinary and cross-cultural, and to offer scholars and researchers, teachers and students, the opportunity to disseminate and discuss their knowledge and understanding of the dynamic, important field of postcolonial studies.
The Annual Conference on South Asia attracts over 500 scholars and other interested parties annually, who travel from a dozen countries around the world and much of the United States including Hawaii and Alaska. The conference features nearly 100 academic panels and roundtables, as well as association meetings and special events ranging from performances to film screenings.
Postcolonial Studies Association Conference (Annual)
Details for the annual PSA conference are posted on their website.
The SALA conference is held every year in December in conjunction with the MLA annual convention.
