FROM REVERENCE TO DESTRUCTION: AN ECO-CRITICAL APPROACH TO AMITAV GHOSH'S 'THE HUNGRY TIDE'

B.KOGILAVANI , SREE SAKTHI ENGINEERING COLLEGE

Nature and literature goes hand in hand. The world of literature throngs with works dealing with beauty and power of nature. However, the concern for ecology and the threat that the continuous misuse of our environment poses on humanity has only recently caught the attention of the writers. This sense of concern has given rise to a new branch of literary theory, namely Eco-criticism. The word eco-criticism first appeared in William Ruekert's essay "Literature and Ecology: An Experiment in Ecocriticism" in 1978. Yet it remained inactive in critical vocabulary. Literary criticism examines the relations between writers, texts and the world. The world is synonymous with society. Ecocriticism expands the idea of the world to include the entire ecosphere.

CFP- Mapping Effaced Identities. Sept 15 deadline

updated: 
Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - 7:47pm
University of Utah Department of Languages and Literature

The twentieth issue of Utah Foreign Language Review seeks to examine the various modes of expression that arise as identities are fragmented and negated through dialectics of power.  From marginalization to dissociation, division by ethnicity, religion or social class, gender or sexuality, how are identities effaced and excluded from mainstream cultures? Through music and poetry, visual arts and literature, what subversive identities show their faces in modern cultural production? How does cultural hegemony subsume these faces in a collective façade, and what alternative 'mappings' are possible?

After Colonial Governmentality: Cultural Memory and (Post)Colonial Community.

Michael R. Griffiths

Comparative work in postcolonial studies often turns on the mode by which subaltern peoples were governed in the high colonial past. Framed in this way, ground for comparison has tended to concern the way the colonized suffered governmental classification, subjection, and regulation by the colonial state. David Scott's seminal essay on this topic, grounded in colonial Ceylon, opened the way to much investigation. Similarly, Ann Laura Stoler's work has incisively examined the relation between apparatuses of colonial governmentality in the former Dutch East Indies and French Indochina.

This July, the world will see Olympic athletes perform at their limits for personal and national glory. But, London restaurants will also compete for customers. Journalists from around the globe will vie for the best story. Fans, too, form an important part of Olympic competition, even if they are thousands of miles away from the physical action. Fans may not compete on the track, but fans do compete against the fans of opposing teams. Why do we feel compelled to compete, to watch competitions, and to pick sides?
