Postcolonial Narrations

The postgraduate forum “Postcolonial Narrations” aims to bring together young scholars and PhD candidates from Germany and beyond who are working in the field of postcolonial literatures and cultures. It provides a platform for young researchers to foster exchange and stimulate discussions of their research topics.

With the support of GAPS, the postgraduate forum organizes a yearly conference at which participants discuss their ideas and current projects with fellow young academics. For further information, please visit the forum’s website.
