At our inaugural Kansas State University Regional Graduate Student Conference in Literature, we will explore the ways in which revolutions of all kind have affected (and continue to affect) our discipline. Revolution! is inspired by Jasbir Puar's groundbreaking work, Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, which critiques contemporary configurations of sexuality, race, gender, nation, class, and ethnicity. Using Puar's work as a touchstone for revolutionary readings, our conference will examine representations of revolution in its various forms—cultural, political, textual, and theoretical—in British and American literature composed during any period.
Chapter proposals for a collection on Asian American literature and the environment currently being considered. Submit a 600-word proposal plus a position-publication profile statement by February 15, 2011. Chapters will be 7000 words due by December 30, 2011.
L. Fitzsimmons is Associate Professor of Humanities at CSUDH in Los Angeles. She is currently editing several collections on Asian popular culture studies with John A. Lent (Temple University).
