Speakers: Elleke Boehmer, Univ. of Oxford; Mrinalini Chakravorty, Univ. of Virginia; Yogita Goyal, Univ. of California, Los Angeles; Jarvis McInnis, Princeton Univ.; Imani Owens, Univ. of Pittsburgh; Nicole Waligora-Davis, Rice Univ.

Panelists examine the relations among postcoloniality, reading practices, and emergent publics. Reading in postcolonial locations challenges how public history is told within dominant or subaltern frames and how collectives are consecrated. Postcolonial reading publics, linking core and periphery of global capitalism, can revolutionize a unitary but unequal world literary system.
