Book Project: Title: Rewriting Her Story: Critical Essays on the Female Subject in the Colonial and Postcolonial World
(Literary Criticism)
Call for Papers
The fragmented or hybrid nature of the postcolonial female subject demands its construction through subversion of both the colonial and the patriarchal discourse. These deconstructive moves within the texts are used to dismantle master narratives inspired by Eurocentric discourse and, at the same time, to call in question the logo centric categories upon which colonial discourses are based.

CALL FOR PAPERS

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
–Matteo Pasquinelli

Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, 84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester

The nineteenth century witnessed a surge of enthusiasm for visiting places associated with authors and their works, and a related interest in the preservation and consecration of authors' houses. In 1847 one of the world's most famous sites of literary tourism, the birthplace of William Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon, was purchased and established by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, while the first blue plaque was introduced in 1867 to mark the birthplace of Lord Byron. What did visitors to literary graves, houses and landscapes seek to experience and how was this mediated by the spaces themselves?

Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.

For Goya, 'Fantasy abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters: united with her, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of their marvels', though some see his etching as revealing the dark undercurrents of Enlightenment. The monster, according to Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, offers ways of understanding the cultures which bear them; 'the monstrum is etymologically "that which reveals"'.
