CFP: R K Narayan Birth-Centenary (India) (7/7/06; 10/10/06-10/12/06)

Thursday, June 15, 2006 - 11:46am

R. K. Narayan Birth-Centenary Conference

A birth-centenary conference on R. K. Narayan will be held from 10 to 12
October 2006 at Mysore. The conference is organized by the Indian
Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (IACLALS) and
the Sahitya Akademi (the National Academy of Letters), New Delhi.

Of all the Indian novelists in English, R. K. Narayan remains one of the
most highly regarded, perhaps the most widely popular, and even the most
"typically Indian". On the occasion of his birth-centenary, we propose to
bring together a group of scholars and admirers of Narayan to re-read and
revaluate his life, works, context and legacy.

CFP: Unaustralia (Australia) (6/30/06; 12/6/06-12/8/06)

Thursday, June 15, 2006 - 11:45am
Paul Magee


The Cultural Studies Association of Australasia Annual Conference
Dec. 6-8 2006

Call for papers:

If things are 'un-Australian' it must be because they come from UNAUSTRALIA.
Where is it? Who lives there? How does it come to be? What is its past and
what is its future?

While raising some very local questions of critique and desire, the theme is
open to international perspectives and interpretations. Do other places have
their own unplaces? What goes on there?

UNTHEMED papers are also welcome.
