In his 1988 lecture “The Condition We Call Exile,” Joseph Brodsky said: “Whatever the proper name for these people [refugees, exiles, émigrés], whatever their motives, origins, and destinations, whatever their impact on the societies which they abandon and to which they come may amount to—one thing is absolutely clear: they make it very difficult to talk about the plight of the writer in exile with a straight face. Yet talk we must; and not only because literature, like poverty, is known for taking care of its own kind, but more because of the ancient and perhaps as yet unfounded belief that should the masters of this world be better read, the mismanagement and grief that make millions take to the road could be somewhat reduced.”

deadline for submissions:

The Carson McCullers Society seeks abstracts on the theme of "Byways in Carson McCullers Scholarship" for the biennial Society for the Study of Southern Literature conference in Austin, TX this February 15-18, 2018. The theme is deliberately broad but especially invites papers on McCullers' literary and biographical engagements with the U.S. military, non-southern characters in her oeuvre, and how her travels and readings abroad, including in Rome and New York, influenced her work. If interested, please send a 250-word abstract and short bio to Society Vice President Isadora J. Wagner (iwagner@go.olemiss.edu) by Thursday, September 7th. Other paper topics related to McCullers will also be considered.

In an age in which the centripetal forces of multilateralism are being challenged by the centrifugal pressures of populism, nationalist agitation and the rediscovery of indigenous forms of collective identity, what exactly is nationhood?

Once defined as the enhanced awareness of one's exclusive nationhood, and laden with associated emotional impulses of pride and belonging, conventional ideas of nationhood are being challenged as never before.
