Spring 2011

Octopus Journal (theoctopusjournal.org), an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed online journal published by the graduate students of the Ph.D. program in Visual Studies at UC Irvine, invites proposals for submissions to its Spring 2011 volume, Invisibility.

Re-Negotiating Identity and Transnationalism
Azade Seyhan writes, " 'Two moves amount to a fire,' a Turkish saying goes. Multiple migrations end in the loss of our homes, possessions, and memorabilia. When the smoke clears, we are faced with charred pieces of identification, shards of language, burned tongues, and cultural fragments. However, from this site of fire, the phoenix of a transnational, bi- and multilingual literature has arisen." This panel aims to explore such a transnational identity and transnational phenomena through their representation in literature- poetry, slogans, short stories, novellas and novels.
