Welcome to the GAPS (Gesellschaft für Anglophone Postkoloniale Studien) conference 2017. The 28th GAPS conference is hosted by the Department of English, American and Celtic Studies at the University of Bonn.

The 2017 conference topic is

Representing Poverty and Precarity in a Postcolonial World

GAPS is the association formerly known as GNEL/ASNEL.

The international conference takes place from May 25th – 27th and focuses on the ethics and aesthetics of representing poverty and precarity across the postcolonial world. It draws on thematic foci from (New) English Literatures and Cultures, Linguistics and TEFL, and thus aims not only at furthering academic exchange and dialogue among junior and senior researchers from different regions but also across a broad range of academic backgrounds.
