Those scholars committed to an inter-disciplinary perspective on human experiences confront centuries-old divisions between and among the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities, competing investigative methods, descriptive foci, and explanatory emphases. Bolstered by specialization, administrative demarcations, professionalization, and expertise, the discontinuities generate trajectories of intellectual enrichment and progress.  On the other hand, have scholars within these intellectual spheres, disciplines, and area studies become passing ships in the night?  What would constitute evidence of this condition, if this is, indeed, the case? Have scholars not been displaced from public discourse and social media?

“(Pero) hoy es incuestionable la supremacía de lo digital, y si a lo largo de nuestra historia un cambio de tecnología supuso evolución en las formas de vida, ¿qué nos puede deparar lo digital?”.

(Cassany: 2000)

The Indian Novel and the State

Friday, August 3, 2018 - 9:24am
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This panel will take up the question of state power as it relates to the aesthetics of the 20th- and 21st-century Indian novel. How do the form and content of the novel inform our understanding of Indian political histories as they emerge from the encounters between the state and its others? In seeking an answer to this question, this panel will attempt to understand the literary discourse of state-led development and its aesthetic claims as they come into contact with counter-discursive forms of identity and belonging. Possible topics include but are not limited to: the postcolonial bildungsroman, the role of autobiography in nationalist discourse, national realism, and subaltern imaginings of the state.
