SPEAKING AS THE ‘OTHER’: Coloniality, Subalternity, and Embodied Political Articulations (late 18th – early 20th centuries)

"Speaking as the 'Other'" is organised by the ERC-funded project CALLIOPE: "Vocal Articulations of Parliamentary Identity and Empire" at the University of Helsinki. This multidisciplinary conference seeks to examine performative, embodied and acoustic histories of articulating political representation and colonial ‘otherness’. To that end, we intend to extend the focus beyond established Anglophone analyses of the metropole and colony, and indeed, beyond the disciplinary pre-eminence of Anglophone postcolonial studies.

For further details, including the full text of the Call for Papers, please have a look at the conference website: https://www.helsinki.fi/en/conferences/calliope-international-conference.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words for 20-minute individual papers, and 500 words for panels or roundtables, along with a brief biographical note of participants (2-3 sentences max), via the following link: https://www.lyyti.fi/reg/CALLIOPE_International_Conference_6110.

The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 21st November 2020. Candidates will be notified of the outcome of their submissions by 16th December 2020.
