Postcolonial Bauman Conference: Call for Papers * Deadline Extended *

As we each adapt to the new realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to recognise the dramatic changes to everyone’s home and working life by extending the deadline for our Call for Papers.

So – abstracts may now be received until 12.00 noon (BST) on Monday 11th May 2020.

Abstracts should be no more than 150 words and clearly linked to one of the four conference strands outlined in the original Call for Papers.

Please email your abstracts to the Organising Committee via Sarah McLaughlin –

Decisions on abstracts will be communicated to authors not later than Friday 15th May 2020.

KEYNOTES: Etienne Balibar; Carlo Bordoni and David Lyon (others TBC)

*** Given the current global uncertainty concerning the health risks of travel (as well as possible restrictions on movement, perhaps into September) – and to make our event as inclusive as possible by assisting the participation of academic and non-academic colleagues from all parts of the world – we are currently planning for the possibility of this 10th Anniversary Conference being held entirely online. FURTHER DETAILS FORTHCOMING ***

Please take good care of yourselves, friends and family.

With our best wishes,

The Bauman Institute

Organising Committee:

Professor Griselda Pollock, Dr Mark Davis, Professor Max Silverman, Professor Tony Bryant, Professor Graham Huggan, Dr Jack Palmer, Ms Sarah McLaughlin.
