Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies

2016 marks the quartercentenary of Shakespeare's death and the upcoming issue of Postcolonial Interventions would focus on the continued relevance of multiple Shakespeares in the culture-scape of the postcolonial world. It is true that not only were Shakespearean plays shaped in many ways by colonial discourses, especially discourses of racial difference, but Shakespearean plays also initially functioned as those "signs taken for wonders" through which the colonial administrators sought to consolidate imperial hegemony, as evident from such critical works as Post-Colonial Shakespeares (1999).

International Seminar on Exploring Trauma: Interdisciplinary Perspectives (January 28-29, 2016)

Thursday, December 31, 2015 - 8:38am
Department of English, University of Gour Banga, West Bengal, India

Trauma Studies is a unique interdisciplinary platform that has acquired a prominent place in contemporary academic studies in the context of increasing visibility of violence in various spheres of human experience. It addresses socio-political issues of immense practical importance. While on the one hand it has been enriched by inputs from researches in different academic disciplines like history, philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, women's studies, ethnic studies, law and literature, it has also been strengthened and updated by sustained movements initiated by activist groups of different hues. Etymologically, 'trauma' means physical wounds but it has gradually absorbed the meaning of psychological wounds as well.

Different Drummers: Military Unit Cohesion and Its Discontents

One goal of military basic training is to replace recruits' focus on their own individuality with an unquestioned devotion to group solidarity. No military unit—whether as small as a squad or as large as an army—can survive unless its members subordinate their personal desires to collective action. This "de-individualization" is evident in everything from dress codes to forms of address, from small-arms drill to a reverence for "proper channels" and "chain of command." To be a member of the armed forces is, by definition, to be subordinate not only to those higher in rank but also to a protocols, regulations, and orders designed to ensure the efficient functioning of the whole.
