Globalisation and postcolonial writing: an Australia-India exchange

Globalisation has changed the world into a unpredictable, blended space. New combinations and confrontations radically challenge our understanding and representations. The conference Globalisation and Postcolonial writing: an Australia-India exchange recognised that Australian, Indian and Austral-Indian cross-cultural studies are areas of serious academic engagement. It provided a space for academic and creative exchange on globalisation as addressed in postcolonial literary, visual, performance and cultural studies. The conference presented a series of celebratory events marking the completion of 150 years of Calcutta University.
