After Postcolonialism - Similarities in an Entangled World

The discourse of cultural studies in the past decades is in many ways a reaction to fundamental geo-political shifts. De-colonization after WWII was accompanied by a postponed loss of meaning—first for Europe, and in time for the West as a whole—of cultural and ideological centers.

The invited speakers and discussants from Africa, South America, the US, India and Europe will revisit both historical and contemporary sites and scenes of contestations between sameness and difference by focusing on the competing possibilities of similarities in various geo-political, national and transnational scenes. In continuation of the aims of the workshop on Similarities in Konstanz “Ähnlichkeit. Valenzen eines Begriffs.” (2011), the Speakers will also reflect on the implications of similarity for theories of culture.
