Postcolonial Collective

Poco Collective LogoUGA’s Postcolonial Collective is a cross-departmental group of faculty and graduate students whose work intersects with the broad field of postcolonial studies. Hailing primarily from the English and Comparative Literature departments, our primary purpose is to exchange ideas and generate conversations about current trends in the field, while also creating connections with other academic units. 

In addition to our coffee hours for faculty and graduate students, we organize several events per year, usually in the form of lectures by visiting speakers, luncheons with scholars, and paper workshops. We are grateful for the generous contributions of the UGA Department of English, the Willson Center for Humanities & Arts, and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

The best way to keep up to date with our events is to join our dedicated listserv. Please contact Dr. Alexander Fyfe ( if you would like to be added.
