This is the convention issue of the PSA Newsletter, covering the 2019 Postcolonial Studies Association Convention, which took place at the University of Manchester, from 11-13 September. The conference theme was ‘Postcolonial Justice’ and this is a topic that many of our contributions engage with in different ways. We feature reflections by the PSA chair and the conference organisers, an extract from one of the keynotes and a discussion of postcolonial justice and branding. This issue also includes a report on the triennial Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (ACLALS) conference, and reports from members who received PSA funding. The book reviews section features reviews of Postcolonial Justice, edited by Anke Bartels, Lars Eckstein, Nicole Waller, and Dirk Wiemann Language and Translation in Postcolonial Literatures: Multilingual Contexts, Transnational Texts, edited by Simona Bertacco and Nayanika Mookherjee’s The Spectral Wound: Sexual Violence, Public Memories and the Bangladesh War of 1971.
