CNaM Network, ASEN Edinburgh and Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power are organising a Master class for PG students and staff:

Insurgent Empire: Anticolonial Resistance and British Dissent

Dr Priyamvada Gopal is a Reader in Anglophone and Related Literature at the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge, UK. Her primary interests are in colonial and postcolonial literature and theory, with related interests in the novel; translation; gender and feminism; Marxism, critical race studies, and the politics and cultures of empire and globalisation.

The master class will be an informal and friendly event and a wonderful opportunity for those doing research in the fields of anticolonial resistance, the British Empire and decolonization.

Participants will receive a small package of selected readings that will help to prepare for the master class. We strongly encourage participants to read / prepare them in advance. This master class is a unique opportunity to discuss the work on anticolonial resistance within the British Empire with a leading scholar in her field.
