This year nepUL is pleased to announce the new CFA for its new International Political Studies Colloquium: More Representation = Democracy?.There has been a growing debate within the media and academic realm in what democracy is concerned. We may often consider the legitimacy of our democracy when hearing an emerging expression of feelings of distrust towards politicians, increasing abstention in many democratic countries and raise of social frustration which leads to the election of so-called extremist parties, non-politicians and populist views. As so, is representation a sufficient condition for the existance of a democratic society or is it only necessary?

(Re)Claiming Our Voices:
Speaking and Writing in English Studies
Keynote Speaker: Christine Denecker, University of Findlay
In his 2020 MLA theme description, Simon Gikandi asks for a reflection on the role of the humanities in “defining the nature of the human in the face of what appears to be its diminishment.” This roundtable, cosponsored by the MLA Africa Since 1990 forum and the Ecocriticism and Environmental Humanities forum, reframes Gikandi’s provocation in ecological terms: how do we define the limits of what Sylvia Wynter terms the “genre of the human” in the face of ecological decline and climate change? Successive reports issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) spell out an increasingly alarming rate of global warming with catastrophic implications for the planet and the various life forms inhabiting it.
Papers sought for a special session at the 2020 MLA Convention. The panel will consider the ways in which working-class writing intervenes in debates about the definition of work, its changing forms, and its political implications. Papers might consider writing that explores subjects such as:
- the impact of increasing automation on the understanding and experience of work
- precarity and the “gig economy”
- marginalized and/or criminalized work
- the rise of surveillance capitalism and new forms of workplace discipline
- the increasing exploitation of emotional labour
- domestic work and caring
