"The Postcolonial Family" International Conference

Collegium Maius UMK
Toruń, Fosa Staromiejska 3 (zobacz na mapie)

The aim of the upcoming interdisciplinary conference is to provide a space for a discussion of the ways in which families function within (post)colonial reality. It will be a unique opportunity to reflect upon and examine the changes not only in the families themselves, but also in social and academic approaches, and attitudes to them.

The conference organisers extend their invitation to scholars who are willing to explore the connection between postcolonial theory and family. Academics representing different fields, including but not limited to literary studies, cultural studies, history, sociology, anthropology, ethnography, psychology, and political sciences, are welcomed to make their contributions to the discussion. The list of suggested fields includes the following, but is not limited to:

  • families in the history of colonisation
  • families in the former colonies
  • the role of families in diasporic communities
  • the political and social situation of immigrant and refugee families
  • cultural hybridity through family lens
  • secrets, silences, and memories in immigrant families
  • gender roles in immigrant families
  • the impact of immigration on families and their structure
  • motherhood, fatherhood, and intergenerational relations
  • cultural and literary representations of families
  • familial metaphors of empires and nations
