British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference - DEADLINE EXTENDED

updated: 
Monday, October 17, 2016 - 6:27pm
British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

We welcome a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates. Thus we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and/or cross-cultural panel proposals.

Claiming the Human, Critiquing the Human

American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

In the conclusion of The Wretched of the Earth, Frantz Fanon points to the limits of the European humanist subject (“Man”) and the ways in which its definition has involved violent actions and exclusions. He calls for a non-Eurocentric project to invent a “new man” that requires an expansion and reconsideration of humanity. This task of imagining and bringing into being a new human seems to involve a delicate double bind: humanity must be claimed in the name of those excluded from its purview; the claim to be human, however, may unwittingly reinforce the transparency and self-evidence of the very category that needs to be interrogated, thus further marginalizing alternative versions of humanity.

Creative writing found a home in universities in the United States in the early part of the twentieth century and grew in popularity in the postwar era. Hundreds of creative writing programs now exist across the nation, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as writers earn any one of a number of degrees: BAs, BFAs, MAs, MFAs, and Ph.Ds.
