CFP: Languages, Cultures and Gender (11-13 May 2016) Ege University, Izmir/TURKEY

updated: 
Sunday, September 13, 2015 - 2:21pm
Ege University, Izmir/TURKEY

The conference theme covers issues relating to gender with special emphasis on how language and culture defines, affects, influences, shapes and visualises gender in a wide spectrum ranging from the individual to the communal across an array of disciplines. Being ideologically, politically and socially constructed, language, culture and gender all intersect at some point. And it is this intersection that we wish to explore comparatively from varying perspectives. Concerned with the HOW and WHY's the aim of the conference is to analyse the content of gender within the very bones of language and culture.

Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:

[UPDATE] ACLA Panel: "All In the Family: The Literary and Cultural Politics of Incest" - SEPTEMBER 23

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2015 - 11:40am
ACLA: American Comparative Literature Association

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.

Imperial Publics

updated: 
Thursday, September 10, 2015 - 5:23pm
ACLA / Boston / March 17-20, 2016

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.
