The international conference 'Names and Naming in the Postcolonial English-speaking World' will be held on June 26-27, 2014, at the University of Calabria, Italy. The conference aims at mapping the ongoing critical debate on postcolonial names and naming practices in English. Besides questioning the hegemonic constructions and power relations embedded in names, it seeks to readdress the theoretical and methodological debate on the study of names and naming in postcolonial contexts from an interdisciplinary perspective that opens up to a wide range of fields in the Humanities.
The conference fee (€ 100) includes: registration and attendance to all sessions, conference pack, buffet lunches and coffee breaks, transfer from the airport of Lamezia Terme to Rende on the evening of June 25, welcome reception.
