Call for Papers: Abu Dhabi January 2020, Print, Orality and Readerships.

The Postcolonial Print Cultures Network are delighted to announce the forthcoming conference ‘Print, Orality and Readerships in New Postcolonial Contexts’, taking place at NYU Abu Dhabi January 22nd-23rd 2020. This workshop aims to examine new forms of postcolonial print cultures and their engagement with orality, ephemerality and recent digital forms.  It focuses broadly on the relationship between print, audio-visual media, the spoken word, and the dissemination and reception of these diverse forms of communication and culture. We are interested in asking if the interactions between print, orature, and/or new digital forms attest to, or rather question, the continuing relevance of the term “postcolonial” as applied to twenty-first century writing from within postcolonial modernities.
