International conference „Ideology in Postcolonial Texts and Contexts“

This conference on Ideology in Postcolonial Texts and Contexts (Münster, 14-16 May 2015) serves as a forum for theoretical reflections and critical re-evaluations of the term ideology in a multi- and interdisciplinary context. As a field that is characterized by diversity with regard to its methodologies as well as to the disciplines involved, contemporary postcolonial studies are particularly well-suited for carrying out this debate around such a highly complex concept. This includes the discussion about the ideological (or counter-ideological?) implications of ‘postcolonialism’ itself.

This conference is organized by the English Seminar at the University of Münster, representing book studies, linguistics, literary and cultural studies, and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). We look forward to a vibrant discussion among our participants and speakers from these and a broad range of neighbouring disciplines.

Invited keynote speakers are:
Lionel Wee, Singapore (confirmed)
Beth LeRoux, Pretoria (confirmed)
Ingrid Johnston, Edmonton (t.b.c.)

The conference will combine different formats, such as plenary talks, panel and roundtable discussions, poster sessions, and readings.

We are very much looking forward to engaging presentations as well as academic exchange and dialogue among junior and senior researchers from different regions as well as a broad range of academic backgrounds.
