This has had a profound effect on the focus of numerous disciplines. Now, the challenge facing postcolonialism is to explain its relevance today. The purpose of the public panel discussion and the preliminary two day panel conference is to challenge the status of postcolonialism and to look for those trends that can help answer the question: What next?
