Subaltern Women’s Narratives: Subversion, Resilience, and Shifting Responses

updated: 
Monday, February 6, 2017 - 12:04pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 23, 2017

This conference aims to look at the material histories and lives of subaltern women. In her 1988 essay ‘Can the Subaltern Speak?’, Gayatri Spivak extends the definition of the ‘subaltern’, going beyond “strict class analysis”, to incorporate a range of different subject positions, not predefined by dominant political discourses. We draw on her definition in our usage of the word ‘subaltern’, to focus on the experience of marginalised women in the present day. Most of the current academic discourse on subaltern women concentrates heavily on narratives of subjugation. However, the varied nature of lived experiences of these women has presented challenges in the knowledge and understanding of their experiences through an overarching critical narrative.

DEFIANCE: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

**DEADLINE EXTENDED: May 8, 2017**

Hard times are coming, when we’ll be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine real grounds for hope. We’ll need writers who can remember freedom – poets, visionaries – realists of a larger reality. […] We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable – but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art. Very often in our art, the art of words.

Issue 5 Bodies

Monday, January 30, 2017 - 12:59pm
Indialogs Spanish Journal of India Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

Issue 5 of Indialogs will focus on the theme of the body from a wide range of perspectives.  The representation of the human body in Indian culture differs enormously from the West.  Women were closely associated with fertility, abundance and prosperity rather than sin and temptation, and sexuality has been embraced openly as can be seen in many temples all over the country.
