    Bakhtinian Theory. Postcolonial and Postsocialist Perspective

    Workshop, organised by the Institute of Contemporary History at the School of Historical and Contemporary Studies and the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES), Södertörn University.

    The workshop is organised in connection to the publication of the special section on “Bakhtinian theory in postcolonial and postsocialist perspective” in the Baltic Worlds (number 1, 2017). The special section was produced as a follow-up of the 15 th International Bakhtin Conference “ Bakhtin as Praxis: Academic Production, Artistic Practice, Political Activism ” (July 2014, Stockholm).

    Bakhtinian concepts have proven to be productive in explaining the ways in which social, political and cultural forces intersect and affect each other, particularly during periods of transition. Such transitions could include colonial struggles for independence, the right to self determination of oppressed populations, the disintegration of the state and its system of governance and large scale migration. Bakhtin’s work describes certain important facets of the operation of authority and violence within culture and the ways in which such forces may be opposed and undermined. The critical traction of categories such as dialogism, carnival and the laughter also will be discussed in connection to postsocialist and postcolonial studies. While Bakhtinian categories are often employed in a mechanical fashion or too loosely, they need to be specified and developed in order to realise their potential.

    The workshop participants will be asked to continue the discussion that was started in the special issue. Questions include (among others): How can Bakhtinian ideas expand and enrich our understanding and analyses of contemporary political movements and social transformations? And How might Bakhtinian ideas be developed or revised better to suit analyses of non-Western cultures?
