Taboo." We are seeking an additional 5 papers to supplement this volume. We
are interested in essays that explore instances of the dialectics of
transgression and taboo in theoretical, poetical, fictional and dramatic texts.

We are particularly interested in papers that explore the intersection
between transgression, taboo, and incest.

Call for Papers: 'Reconstructing Hybridity'; An Anthology of Critical Essays

We will greatly welcome your original high-quality contribution to the
volume Reconstructing Hybridity which will provide an interesting
international forum for the discussion of hybridity. In recent years,
hybridity has become one of the most important and influential as well as
contested concepts in post-colonial theory. While theorists like Homi
Bhabha have used it to describe the effective and productive conditions of
culture, others like Aijaz Ahmad criticize the application of the term as a
form of postmodern alienation, devoid of historical particularity.
