Wales has a distinctive national culture. The 2011 Census, however, indicated that the Welsh, like other British nationals, were becoming more culturally diverse. This is not surprising: the effects of the World imposing itself on Wales – industrialisation in the nineteenth century, for example – are continuous and impact profoundly on its literature.

Concept Note: This is a Call for Papers for an edited volume which attempts to enhance scholarship in the active and burgeoning field of Victorian and Neo-Victorian studies and incorporating its relevance to an Open and Distance curriculum where the Victorian period and its literary pieces form a core section of the Post Graduate course (you are welcome to have a look at the syllabus on the website under the school of Humanities). It thus aims at providing greater scope for research in the segment to Victorian scholars as well as creating a readymade source of reference for the learners of this University as well as for researchers in Victorian studies in general.

This panel invites submissions on the subject of disability as represented and narrativized in postcolonial literatures and cinema of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. How do these texts represent, complicate, and undermine the concept of disability? How do disabled characters function in these narratives and to what effect? How does disability intersect with issues of gender, class, race, and ethnicity? How does it inform the construction of citizenship?

Papers might address but are not limited to:

- Disability and war

- Disability, gender, and/or sexuality

- Disability on screen

- Disability and care

- Disability and international aid

- Disability and prostheses
