Critique in the Postcolonial Anthropocene Special Session at the 2021 MLA Convention  The 'postcolonial anthropocene', as the relationship of decentered human subjects with various forms of non-human lives and materialities in the postcolony, offers opportunities to interrogate new and unique forms of the anthropocene in postcolonial contexts. It leads to a range of questions provoked by the inhabitation of a postcolonial contemporary, thus reasserting the fragility of the human and its relationship to the environment as subject and object. Upon such a premise, how do we adapt the traditions of critique inherited from the twentieth century for this new understanding of the postcolonial?

Rapunzel lowers her plaited hair 20 cubits deep, so that her prince can climb into her hermetically sealed tower. Donald Trump’s signature quiff – a piece of interwoven fabric with no evident beginning and end – is treated as a metaphor for his relationship to truth and politics. Samson defeats the Philistines oppressing the Israelites in the Old Testament with his superhuman strength: the origin of his invincibility lies in the vigour of his hair as long as it is not cut.

Call for papers for a book approved for publication by Routledge, on Bollywood cinema, expected to fall within the interdisciplinary spaces of Cultural Studies, Film Studies and Postcolonial Studies.

Even as the air in Delhi grows increasingly toxic and poisonous, a fearful, dreaded specter is haunting the subcontinent today, just as toxic as the poisonous air. The rise and rise of Hindutva, or Hindu nationalism or political Hindu agenda that has engulfed India has also initiated the favorite pursuit of right wing of invoking the ‘glorious past’. This ‘glorious past is primarily being invoked by a surge of historical(s) in Bollywood.
