The Postcolonial Colloquium is organized by graduate students of the Department of English at Princeton University as a forum for the study of the problem of postcolonialism. During the academic year, we host talks and discussions that reflect on the different kinds of subjects and forms of subjection that can be called postcolonial today.
An important function of the colloquium is to serve as a venue within the department for conversations about difference, especially racial and ethnic difference. We also seek to provide a space for conversations about theory and method, with a particular emphasis on the intellectual legacies of anti-colonial discourse and postcolonial studies.
The colloquium’s theme for 2017–2018 is the relationship between subjectivity and technology.
