Narrating the Postcolonial North. Travel, Writing, Performance


This research group studies emerging forms of experience production and exhibition in Northern tourism, creative industries and the media. In doing so, we explore and extend the field of postcolonial theory with a view to grasp the intricate processes of northern decolonization, at a time when legal rights are being worked out and competing interests are articulated. Our research acknowledges the complex, contradictory and power-related aspects of such processes, and focuses more heavily on critical analysis and deconstruction than on supplying new models. The activities and network of the research group will reflect this theoretical profile. An additional aim is to foster a research environment around cultural and ecological sustainability and new cooperative practices in the north. We will also explore how interdisciplinarity in research might bring new research questions and theoretical ambitions, and inaugurate new academic and mediatory practices.
