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?

MLA 2020 CFP: Postcolonial Studies, the Environmental Humanities, and the Limits of the Human

MLA Africa Since 1990 forum/ Ecocriticism and Environmental Humanities Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2019

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.

Friday, March 15, 2019

Universities often separate into departments based on geographic regions as seen in the designations of “English” and “French.” Yet for medieval studies, these two regions were not completely separate entities, but deeply entwined with culture, land, and even leadership frequently changing hands or uniting them together. Based on the 2018 conference of the same name, this panel aims to bring together scholars of English and French—as well as other disciplines—to show how their work necessarily crosses the boundaries between these two fields.

Conference Theme: “Upheaval and Reconstruction”

Tracing the origins of what he calls the “Myth of the [Great] War,” Samuel Hynes has argued that soldier-poets and memoirists gave this narrative of the conflict its “fullest definition” in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and that it “can be reduced to two terse propositions: the old betray the young; the past is remote and useless” (A War Imagined x). “No generation since then has questioned its validity,” Hynes continues; rather, the soldier-poets’ account is “repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth.”
