CFP: Asian Gothic Literature (31 Dec. 2003, Collection)
=20
I am soliciting for ABSTRACTS at this stage for a monograph of scholarly
essays on Asian Gothic Literature. Despite its Anglo-centric literary
heritage, I believe that the Gothic, in its ambivalence and
susceptibility to polyvalent interpretations and theorising, is a
helpful way of reading and understanding the vast output of powerful
Asian texts that carry strong strains of the forbidden, the
extraordinary, the fantastic, the supernatural and the uncanny (amongst
other =91Gothic=92 concerns). Furthermore, a vast majority of =
contemporary
Asian writers have been exposed to turn-of-the-century Western

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Contemporary Theatre Review: Theatre and Globalization We are inviting
submission proposals for a special issue of Contemporary Theatre Review
(February 2005) on 'Theatre and Globalization'.

Globalization is transforming our world: compressing time and space,
challenging the power of the nation-state, juxtaposing and erasing
cultural differences, replacing geographical boundaries with the
weightless flows of global capital, giving new life to ancient forms of
cultural rivalry, bringing all areas of personal, social, and cultural
life within its awesome reach.

We are seeking three strong essays to round out an edited book
collection as described below. We would need a one-page abstract by
10/5, and full paper by end of December. We are planning an edited
volume of essays exploring the intersection between postcolonial and
globalization studies. We believe that such an exploration is important
to undertake at this time to counter the hegemonizing/homogenizing
tendencies we sense emerging in dominant strands of contemporary
cultural theory. It is unclear whether contemporary globalization theory
has been made possible by the postcolonial challenge to older
Eurocentric forms of globalization premised on the centrality of the

Call for Papers (Edited Collection)

Research and Publication Centre at the National College of Arts, Lahore,

Pakistan, invites research papers for publication in a peer-reviewed
collection. The aim of the book is to examine the relationship between
education and colonialism. Therefore, the papers should examine the
pedagogical practices, institutions and British colonialism in the
subcontinent, especially with reference to contemporary Pakistan. The
editors would eagerly welcome those papers that employ theoretical
innovation with rigorous scholarship in order to analyze the nexus of
education and the legacies of imperialism in South Asia.

Possible areas of investigation can include:

Call for Papers

Articles are invited for a forthcoming anthology of writings on
‘migration’ within and out of South Asia in the 20th century.

The volume, tentatively titled "To Cities, Countries, Continents," will be
divided into three thematic sections. The first will focus on texts that
portray migration of rural populations to colonial and postcolonial urban
centers. The focus of the second section will be on texts that address the
migrations across national borders in 1947, 1971 and later. The third
section will analyze texts on the migrational experience of expatriate
South Asians (including indentured laborers) in Africa, Europe and the
Americas.
