The Postcolonial Studies Reading Group

The Postcolonial Studies Reading Group is a community of scholars who conduct research on and teach a range of topics pertaining to forms of empire, imperialism, colonial and neo-colonial experience. The group focuses on intersections of theory, literature, and visual culture with race, class, gender, and sexuality. Group members come from various departments and faculties at Western University and colleges in London.  Members work on literatures and film of Africa, the Caribbean, South-Asia, and the Indigenous cultures of Canada and the US. The group meets about once a month. Activities at the meetings include discussions of selected readings or writing workshops around a member’s project. The group also hosts speakers.
