THE LAND OF EARLY NIGHTFALL: A CRITICAL PERSPECTIVE OF THE LITERATURE OF NORTHEAST INDIA, Submission Date: Up to June 30, 2014

The phrase Northeast Literature refers to the writings from the Seven Sisters of Northeast India as well as Sikkim; but the diversity of this region defies any such attempt of easy definition. There are more than sixty major tribes in the region and each of them has its own language, folktales or oral literature and songs as well as different myths about their origin. Moreover when we look at the existing anthologies on Indian Literature we find that in most of these either the Northeast Literature is missing or is marginally represented although the region is the vast reservoir of literary resources.

Deadline extended for University of York Centre for Modern Studies PG Symposium, Nature at War - send abstracts by 22nd April.

Taking place during the centenary of the First World War, 'Nature at War' is an interdisciplinary one-day symposium organised by the Postgraduate Forum of the Centre for Modern Studies at the University of York, exploring the dynamic between nature (broadly-conceived) and war from the mid-nineteenth to early twenty-first centuries. Is the dynamic of nature and war essentially one of conflict, and if so, how can that conflict itself avoid being 'unnatural'? How do ideas of naturalness and unnaturalness manifest themselves in war contexts?

Given 1) the ongoing expansion of modernist studies in "temporal, spatial, and vertical" directions (Mao and Walkowitz) and 2) a renewed interest in textual materiality and modernist institutions (Jeremy Braddock's Collecting as Modernist Practice), the time would seem right for a thorough reconsideration of literary anthologies in/and/of modernism.

November 7-8, 2014

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or magician with the same delight." C. S. Lewis. The Screwtape Letters
