The conference “Colonial Legacies, Postcolonial Contestations: Decolonizing the Social Sciences and the Humanities”. Date: 16-18.06.2011. Site: Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Deadline: 31.05.2011
Organiser: Frankfurt Research Center for Postcolonial Studies (FRCPS)
Topics: Conference presentations are sought particularly to examine those fields in which postcolonial theory has largely been underrepresented. Postcolonial-feminist theory comprises a key point of reference for the conference, because it has simultaneously led to an increasing differentiation and crucial revisions both within Postcolonial Studies as well as within Gender and Women‘s Studies.
The conference‘s goals are twofold:
- first, the organizer seeks to illustrate the epistemological and methodological relevance of a postcolonial (feminist) perspective within the various disciplines of the Social Sciences and the Humanities by example of concrete research projects;
- second, the organizer aims to facilitate (trans-) disciplinary networking.
The conference is conceived of as a graduate conference for early career researchers; contributions with a reference to postcolonial (feminist) theory from advanced students, doctoral candidates and postdocs in the Social Sciences and the Humanities are most welcome.
Language: English, French, Spanish
