Download flyer >

This inaugural workshop focuses upon several situated colonial formations that demonstrate the specificities and convergences of colonial violence, rule and governance, displacement and its legacies. Participants will reflect on the differentiated concerns of slavery, military colonialism, war, processes of extraction and accumulation, cultural imperialism, gendered hierarchies, etc. The workshop will provide an opportunity to explore the meaningful links among multiple sites, communities, and subjects in which and for whom colonialisms have forcibly shaped and remade terrains of diaspora, struggle and contestation.

Workshop participants include:

Partha Chatterjee, Columbia University; Center for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta
Walter Johnson, Harvard University
Stephanie Smallwood, University of Washington
Neferti Tadiar, Barnard College, Columbia University
Shaden Tageldin, University of Minnesota
