The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal

We are pleased to announce a call for papers to be featured in the second issue of The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal, housed in the University of Connecticut's Department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages. For this issue, titled "What to Make of 'Nation'?", we welcome article submissions that treat the often-problematic complexities of nation-centric constructs such as nationhood, nationalism, and national identity, as well as counter-constructs rooted in discourses of globality, postcolonialism, universality, human rights, and other bustling spheres of critical inquiry. This issue aims to complicate the very idea of nation by interrogating the limitations of its political, geographical, and socio-cultural dimensions.

The Answer to Everything is Fuck: Critical Responses to Eimear McBride's A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - 12:28pm
Aidan Byrne and Nicola Allen

Eimear McBride's A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing was published in 2013 to widespread acclaim. It has since become a touchstone for contemporary experimental literature as well as kicking off a new wave of innovative Irish writing. Dramatizing tensions between the state and the church in Ireland and Irish women's struggles for sexual emancipation and agency, the book draws on Irish modernism but also challenges its inherently masculinist discourse.

Minor Shakespeares: the politics and aesthetics of the margins - 23rd-24th September, 2016

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - 11:25am
University of Split, Croatia

Keynote lectures: Peter Greenaway and Prof. Richard Wilson

For Deleuze and Guattari there are modes of literature that offer themselves to the state, to official and institutional discourse, and thus to the hierarchically transcendent. These reactionary forms are to be contrasted with the resistant, revolutionary, and immanent 'lines-of-flight' of 'minor literature'.
