Cultures of Violence in South Asia EditorialSpecial Issue of Kairos: A Journal of Critical Symposium (Vol.2, Issue 1, 2017) While the Indian Subcontinent lays claim to a rich legacy of anti-colonialism borne out of Gandhian ideals of non-violence, it is fraught with periodic flare-ups of violence between the state, insurgency groups, religious organizations, among a wide spectrum of other actors. It could even be argued that the violence has been congenital to the nation-state formation in the Indian Subcontinent, as exemplified in the rich literary tradition of the Partition narratives by SaadatManto, Ahmed Ali, Khushwant Singh, and Bapsi Sidhwa.

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under this category is that there is some “unrealistic” element.  Whether it’s magical, supernatural, or even a futuristic technological development, works that fall in this category stray from conventional realism in some way.  For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from Gabriel Garcia Marquez to H.

Papers might consider how Lawrence represents charisma,  how his ideas of leadership change, or how others responded to him. Please send abstract by March 15 to Joyce Wexler: jwexler@luc.edu

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

But while traditional ideas about audience often denote passive reception or disinterested judgment, certain artistic forms recast the observer as an active participant and/or collaborator in the construction of the art object’s meaning.
