[UPDATE] The Poetics/Politics of Post-Postmodernism

Thursday, October 16, 2014 - 10:28pm
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English (ACCUTE)

In the epilogue to the second edition of The Politics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon heralds the closure of the very period she helped to define: "Let's just say it," she admits, "it's over" (2002: 165-166). This view has in recent years been echoed by an increasing number of cultural critics, who cite the failure of the postmodern aesthetic—developed in the 1970s and characterized by fragmentation, self-reflexivity, and irony—to embody the very real ethical and political concerns of twenty-first century citizens (cf. Eshelman, 2008; Kirby, 2009; Toth, 2010; Vermeulen and van den Akker, 2010; Abrahamson, 2013).

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 6:31pm
Editors: Jim Cocola (Worcester Polytechnic Institute) and Jessica Maucione (Gonzaga University)

This edited collection examines literary expressions of ethnic identity vis-à-vis cultural institutions, national affiliations, and comparative racializations. Taking Italian Canadian literature as a pivot and a point of departure, we also invite essays spanning several related multiethnic literary traditions. Areas of emphasis may include but are not limited to matters of affect, aesthetics, citizenship, community, geography, heritage, language, and politics. We seek contributions keyed to a wide range of places and times—individual essays need not be explicitly comparative in their own right, though the collection as a whole will offer points of contact between several ostensibly separate subsets of literature.

In turn, this collection will:
