On this panel, we would like to consider the concept of incest in relation to society across a number of time periods and cultural forms. Incest may stem from an impulse to purity–keeping bloodlines clean and families insular–and at the same time it may result in deformity and monstrosity. Regardless of the character of an incestuous liaison, incest is in every instance bound up with the patriarchal, heteronormative social structure of the family, either disrupting this order or constituting it.

This seminar seeks to rethink public sphere theory and the idea of counterpublics through the lens of imperial history and the global circulation of texts along imperial circuits from the eighteenth century through the twentieth.
In the early 1990s, scholars of colonial India were concerned that discussions of publics in South Asia were dominated by premises drawn from the European tradition. Since then, the transnational turn in postcolonial studies has increasingly made us aware of the intellectual and material connections among the nationalist movements at work in European colonies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

We invite essays for an upcoming collection that utilize transnational approaches to theorize city space. Accepted essays will offer literary and cultural analyses that encourage us to think of cities, in all of their complexity, as sites of transnational, transactional engagement. In taking this approach, we hope to demonstrate how cities, which are increasingly extending and challenging boundaries of place, provide sites for complicating our understandings of citizenship, nationality, and the nation.
