Seeking essays (25-30 pages in length) for a proposed book entitled, PORTALS OF THE PAST: VERTIGO AND THE SPECIFICITIES OF PLACE.

What Postcolonial Theory Doesn't Say

A conference at the University of York, UK, 3-5 July 2010, in partnership with the University of Leeds and Manchester Metropolitan University

Postcolonial Studies is firmly ensconced in the Anglophone metropolitan academy: the field has its own specialised journals, academic posts, postgraduate courses, and dedicated divisions within learned bodies. But how well have these configurations travelled to other locations, institutions and disciplines? What topics, questions and approaches remain unexplored? And what's 'theoretical' about postcolonial theory anyway?

J. Shantz

ANARCHISM AND THE LITERARY IMAGINATION

Chapters are sought for the collection Anarchism and the Literary Imagination. This volume examines historical and contemporary engagements of anarchism and literary production. Anarchists have used literary production to express opposition to values and relations characterizing advanced capitalist (and socialist) societies while also expressing key aspects of the alternative values and institutions proposed within anarchism. Among favoured themes are anarchist critiques of corporatization, prisons and patriarchal relations as well as explorations of developing anarchist perspectives on revolution, ecology and ecocriticism, polysexuality and mutual aid.
