English in a Global Context: Postcolonial Intersections in Literary and
Linguistic Studies

A one-day conference at the School of English Literature, Language and
Linguistics, Newcastle University.

Date: Sunday 25 November
Venue: G5 Percy Building, Newcastle University

The linguistic aspects of postcolonial writing and the stylistic aspects of
language in postcolonial contexts are under-researched areas.

These domains engage creative writers and academic scholars in equal measure,
and this conference aims to map some of the new research that is being done at
the intersections between postcolonial writing, linguistics and criticism.

This one-day conference will showcase research in these areas at Newcastle as
well as invited papers from key researchers in these domains both nationally and
internationally. The idea would be to ask all speakers to present material that
is accessible to a wide audience drawn from both literature and language studies
in order to facilitate discussion between the two 'camps', which we hope would
lead to cross-pollination.
