      II INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON POSTCOLONIAL STUDIES
      GLOBALIZATION AND NATIONALISMS
      UNIVERSIDADE DE VIGO
      24-26 OCTOBER 2001

      The Second International Conference on Postcolonial Studies seeks to
      create a space for discussion and exchange of perspectives about the
      diverse theoretical and critical approaches to the phenomena of
      globalization and nationalisms in contemporary societies. The aim is to
      go deep into the analysis of the manifestations and effects of these two
      currents with an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses the fields
      of culture, economy, politics, history, the arts, etc.

      The topic of this Second Conference refers to the tensions existing
      between, on the one hand, the contemporary system of global economy and
      the subsequent political and cultural neoimperialism, and, on the other
      hand, the resistance put up by the identities that define themselves
      from local and community positions. Some topics we propose for
      consideration are the following:

      ? Relationships between nationalism, multiculturalism and globalization
      ? Revisions of the concept of the nation-state
      ? New notions of citizenship
      ? The new economic and cultural imperialism
      ? Feminisms and globalization/nationalisms
      ? Race, ethnicity and global/local culture
      ? The role of languages in the new identities
      ? The tensions between the local and the global in literature and the
      arts

      We invite proposals for 20-minute papers analyzing these and other
      related questions in any field of knowledge.

      Send abstract (250-300 words, in English, Spanish or Galician) by May 1,
      2001, to the following address:
