The third edition of the postgraduate forum “Postcolonial Narrations” addresses the interconnections between imperial practices and neurosis. The forum theme proposes to investigate the range of ‘neuroses’ that are generated by or connected to colonial or imperial experiences, but transcends any strictly clinical meaning of ‘neurosis’ and expands into philosophical, literary, and metaphorical implications of the term.

The postgraduate forum welcomes contributions by PhD students and postdocs who work in the field of Anglophone literature and cultures, Postcolonial Studies, Linguistics, Pedagogy, Media and Film Studies. Contributors are invited to engage with the theme of “Empire & Neurosis.” As the postgraduate forum aspires to facilitate dialogue, exchange, and collaboration among junior scholars, participants will be given the opportunity to present their projects to an audience of early-career researchers. The conference will take place at the University of Duisburg-Essen, October 8-10, 2015.
