It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the International
Conference on Literature
: “Contemporary Perspectives on/in Postcolonial and Diasporic Literature and Theory” to be held on July 25-26 in Penang, Malaysia. This conference is an effort of the Postgraduate Students' Club of the School of Humanities, Universiti Sains Malaysia.
In the 2018 conference we want to pay special attention to emerging directions and practices on/in postcolonial and diasporic literature and theory. Since the beginning of the new millennium, the world has witnessed important changes in social, political, cultural and economic landscapes. The shifts have in turn pushed postcolonial studies and diaspora studies to expand beyond their origins in literary studies and their primary focus on ‘representation’ to an engagement with epistemological, ethical and political questions. Through ICL, we want to respond and contribute to current critical and theoretical debates by moving toward the study of world literatures and global theoretical, aesthetic and cultural practices. The conference also aims to trigger a debate about the future of the disciplines, and thus reinvigorate and pioneer certain dimensions of the areas.
