Third Conference of the Postcolonial Europe-Network in collaboration with the DFG Research Training Group Globalization and Literature: Representations, Transformations, Inventions
LMU Munich, June 26-28, 2014
The third Postcolonial Europe-Network (PEN) conference, in collaboration with the DFG Research Training Group Globalization and Literature: Representations, Transformations, Inventions, sets out to explore weather, climate and climate changes, both past and present, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The aim is to broaden existing theoretical frameworks and to examine, historicize and contextualize discourses on climate and weather. Particular consideration will be given to literature and the arts, which we consider as an archive where specific meteorological knowledge is not only registered but also scrutinized and produced. Keynote speakers: Dipesh Chakrabarty, Elizabeth DeLoughrey, Eva Horn, Graham Huggan, Bernhard Malkmus, Mirko Bonné, Cornelia Lüdecke.
