"South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities" -- paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention (March 23-26, 2017, Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.).

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.

Susan Howe and the and the Politics of the Archive in the 21st Century

In The Birthmark (1993), Susan Howe observes: "if you are a woman, archives hold perpetual ironies. Because the gaps and silences are where you find yourself." For Howe, historical omissions have been avenues for critical and creative agency. Writing into gaps--into invisible intersections between poetry and scholarship--Howe's work has brought us new forms of thinking and feeling about how we organize knowledge and what we recognize as "information." Howe's interrogation of the politics and aesthetics of knowing feels especially urgent in our current moment of Wikileaks and the Panama Papers, drone surveillance, the NSA, the spread of news via social media, and reality television.
