POSTCOLONIALITY AND BLACKNESS: RISKING THE MOMENT
Ed. Shona N. Jackson and Mikko Tuhkanen

All of our pasts are therefore futural in orientation. They help us make the unavoidable journey into the future. There is, in this sense, no "desire for going back," no "pathological" nostalgia that is also not futural as well.

KADAR KOLI—THE VIOLENCE ISSUE--Jan 15, 2012

updated: 
Friday, December 2, 2011 - 3:42pm
Habenicht Press

The idea for this special issue of kadar koli emerged from a question posted by British poet Keston Sutherland to the UK poetry listserv and to the Sous Les Pavés online discussion group in response to "calls for violence" during and after the U.K. protests: "I … want to know what people think about the wishing for and urging of violence (against whom? just the police, or who else? how?)." One example cited by Sutherland is Justin Katko's "Lines for a Protest Song, After 9 December":

"Sometimes I wish that instead of their horses
They'd call up the hold where they store their guns;
And when they shoot one of us down we'll rise up stronger,
For in the taste of our blood be remembered we are one."

"'The Plains' as a Unique Place in Literature"; MAASA Conference; Tulsa, OK; April 1-3, 2012

Brian Brooks / Northeastern State University, Broken Arrow

Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County depicts an Oklahoma family dealing with the hardships of death, discord, substance abuse, and other problems while confined by "the Plains." Letts sets the play in a claustrophobic space, a house with the windows covered, to make a statement about life on the plains. His study about family requires the audience to evaluate whether or not the Plains is a distinct place, or if the concerns are of larger import.
