Turning to the artistically fruitful “wrong” of unrequited love as imagined by George Herbert, Seamus Heaney redresses the utter capriciousness of the art: “I want to profess the surprise of poetry as well as its reliability; I want to celebrate its given, unforeseeable thereness, the way it enters our field of vision and animates our physical and intelligent being….” Poets and writers, artists and musicians have all celebrated the error as evoking the unforeseen possibilities of their craft. (One might be reminded of Elizabeth Bishop’s “Man-Moth.”) Why ought the reader be excluded from the joy, the new knowledges, and the potential political subversiveness of the mistaken reading?

The cultural criminologist Michelle Brown calls for a greater consideration of the various kinds of spaces of enclosure and exclusion experienced by vast portions of the global population. While debates over the United States’ domestic policies of mass incarceration and its policies of imprisonment under the War on Terror may readily come to mind, Brown encourages us to consider how other sites such as refugee camps, migrant detention centers, and black sites blur the boundaries and push the limits of  how we think about incarceration.

TITLE: South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities

Paper abstracts are invited for a seminar/roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention, March 23-26, 2017 (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.)

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.
