"Feminisms Reclaimed: Engendering Development, Global Capitalism, and the Modern"

The recent obsession with Post/modernity and globalization has left many caught up in a discourse of glocality and social change on the one hand and global policing and multi-national corporate financing on the other. Though recently some have turned their attention toward women and gender mainstreaming in these discourses, it is unclear whether or not this new focus on women can cross disciplinary and policy divides. Nor is it clear that focusing on women is in fact unpacking gender negotiations or employing feminist ethics.

The International Conference on Romanticism announces its call for papers

CALL FOR PAPERS: POSTCOLONIAL REVISIONS OF EARLY MODERN HISTORIES. (Deadline
3/1/04; Book Collection)
Unpublished essays that engage the Postcolonial treatment of Early Modern
texts and contexts from the perspective of contemporary novelists are
invited for a collection entitled Postcolonial Revisions of Early Modern
Histories. The book furthers a dialogue not only between Postcolonial and
Early Modern Studies from the relatively neglected vantage point of the
Postcolonial fiction writer, but also seeks to revise Postcolonial Studies
by extending its attention to regions and literatures that are only
beginning to be included in its corpus. As such then, contributions that

I am writing this to clarify some points concerning this proposed
project for a collection of critical writings on Asian Gothic
literature.=20
Firstly, a simplistic application of the Gothic to contemporary Asian
literature is discouraged. Although much Asian writing deals with issues
revolving around taboo, excess and transgression of various kinds, to
deem this as automatically Gothic would be uncritical.
Secondly, it is encouraged that a study of Gothic poetics and the way
they manifest itself in Asian text be undertaken. Some of the familiar
Gothic tropes like the repressed, the uncanny, the numinous, ghosts and
spectres, radical evil etc. can be explored, but again, with careful
