The renewed attention to the media of literature has spurred a
resurgent interest in radio. This seminar will continue this project,
with special attention to the uses of radio in varied historical,
geographical, and cultural contexts. Questions might include: Is radio
always local? What happens to "voice" on the radio? How has state
control of radio affected the broadcasting of literature? How did
audiences hear radio? How did access to radio change the genres of
philosophical, literary, or dramatic writing, or alter the contours of
a particular career?

CFP: [Collections] Re-Orientalisms

Essays are invited for a collection tentatively entitled Re-Orientalisms.
Orientalism (Said, 1978) has not only been alive and well, but has
developed in a curious direction over the last few decades â€" a process
which has been termed “re-Orientalism” (Lau, 2007), where Orientals are
perpetrating Orientalisms no less than non-Orientals.
Like Orientalism, re-Orientalism has shaped actual fragmentary
representations of the "Orient." This has recently been brought to the
fore by the winning of the coveted Booker prize by Aravind Adiga's The
White Tiger. Indeed, Adiga's novel has been facing accusations,
especially in the Indian nativist media, of complicity with a re-

Cooking Latino: Food, Writing, and Identity in Contemporary Latino/a
Literature
Scholarly essays are sought for a volume on Food, Writing, and Identity
as represented in literary works by Latino and Latina authors published
from the 1960’s until today. We are interested in the ways food
references and culinary metaphors in these texts create culture,
ethnicity, gender, class, religion, history and citizenship, and in the
ways theoretical examinations of cooking and eating bear on the
disciplines of critical studies, feminism, postmodernism, and
postcolonialism.
