Postcolonialism provides us with a distinctive theoretical rubric for a range of panels (open and closed) during the IPSA July 2020 Congress. We invite scholars from diverse disciplines to share their stories about how they connected with postcolonial theory within their fields of inquiry as well as envisage possible futures in this domain. We particularly encourage scholars to consider convening and participating in panels on the question of gender, race, caste, class and the anthropocene as viewed from diverse postcolonial perspectives. The sessions shall provide an excellent opportunity to collectively appraise ourselves of the state of play of postcolonialism both as a distinctive theoretical strand and as a political sensibility.
