SYMPOSIUM 27 & 28 MARCH 2009 : MEDIA, COMMUNICATIONS AND THE POSTCOLONIAL
This symposium seeks to discuss the question of media in postcolonial societies as well as postcolonial problematics within the media. What kind of postcolonial theory is appropriate to communications studies, what is the nexus between postcoloniality and globalization? The papers will discuss cases where colonialist discourse re-emerges in mediating language and
visuals, as well as those where hybrid identities emerge and historical lines of difference are deconstructed.
The conference takes place on Friday at the University of Paris-Dauphine in the 16th arrondissement of Paris and on Saturday at the American University of Paris in the 7th.
