Queer(ing) decoloniality

The upcoming February lectures conference and edited collection will explore how, in contemporary South Africa, queer lives and queer writing intersect with the narratives of colonial history, the actualities of the postcolonial now, and, specifically, the drive towards decoloniality.

We would like to invite chapter contributions that open spaces of discussion and exploration between queer theory and narrative(s) of the contemporary moment in South Africa, but also more generally in the global South, such as:

Caesura—Journal of Philological and Humanistic Studies

 

Special Issue: “The Experience of Literature”

 

Guest Editor: Peter Mathews (Hanyang University)

 

Caesura is putting together a special issue on the topic of “the experience of literature.”

 

This special issue considers the way in which literature is experienced, whether by readers, authors, or characters, in fiction or in theory. Often, encountering literature is portrayed as a life-changing moment or turning-point, but this is not necessarily the case – indeed, essays exploring the resistance to literature’s effects, or even a total lack of receptivity to it, are especially welcome.

Elsewhere: Wandering In and Out of the Humanities

updated: 
Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 6:57pm
New Voices Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2017

J. R. R. Tolkien once wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost.” Although this quotation has experienced its fair share of "inspirational quote" status by both Tolkien and Coachella fans alike, there remains a question of what "wandering" and "being elsewhere" means for the academic community. The 2018 New Voices Graduate Conference invites submissions that consider concepts of elsewhere. How do the terms interdisciplinary, difference, and othering delineate the elsewhere of cultural studies? What do authors and texts stand to gain wandering outside canonical forms? We also invite papers that explore the elsewheres of canonical texts, as well as papers that illuminate uncanonized and/or forgotten works.
