Call for papers: "Exappropriating the Human: Tele-technologies,
Postcolonialism, and Their Convergence in Contemporary Globalization,"
seminar at the 2006 ACLA: American Comparative Literature Association
Annual Conference, Princeton University, March 23-26, 2006. The goal of this seminar is to reflect upon the
dehumanizing and uprooting capacity of language through the concept of
"exapropriation," a term coined by Derrida in his later works. The term

language puts the human in place (hands it the qualities that are proper to it, appropriation) and at the same time

We invite submissions to a collection of essays (already in progress)
entitled Anomalous Eyes: Postcoloniality and the Detective. Essays should
address such questions as: In what ways do societies in the throes of
decolonization or postcoloniality resist or transform the epistemological
"truth quest" conventionalized in the structure of the detective narrative?
Can the detective novel operate independently of national, imperial, or
global ideologies? How have authors worked with the figure of the detective
in ways that complicate the narrative or ideological stances typically
associated with modernism and postmodernism? And what happens when authors

A CALLALOO CALL FOR PAPERS

POSTCOLONIALITY AND BLACKNESS

Callaloo seeks creative and multi-disciplinary critical submissions for a
special issue on "postcoloniality and blackness." For this issue, we are
interested in looking comparatively at the uneven postcolonial situation of
black peoples and cultures in the 21st century. We seek to explore the
diverse material and political circumstances of black postcolonials, and the
limitations of current postcolonial theorizing for the black experience.

Creative Submissions
Previously unpublished work in all genres, including interviews.
