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. The aim 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. For the 26th annual conference, Clair Wills, the Leonard L. Milberg Professor of Irish Letters at Princeton University and member of the Royal Irish Academy, will give the Keynote address.
