A new postcolonial and world literature and cultures reading group at the University of Leeds.

This new reading, film and discussion group at the University of Leeds aims to bring together researchers to discuss landmark publications and non-canonical contributions alongside current, pioneering work in the fields of postcolonial literature and theory, world literature and world-culture. Beyond the focus on theory, we will share texts and cultural products to enable us to develop our understanding of major pieces of work, in a creative and stimulating space. This group is aligned with Leeds’ Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies, as well as the newly-founded Centre for World Literatures.

Founded in November 2016, we meet several times a semester. We hope this research group will become a focal point for researchers to hear opinions on their work, develop their thinking on certain issues, or simply to acquaint themselves further with the debates within postcolonial studies and world literature.

All are welcome to join the discussion for intellectual debate and the exchange of ideas in a convivial setting.
