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

Friday, November 11, 2005 - 2:17pm

We invite submissions to a collection of essays (already in progress)
entitled Anomalous Eyes: Postcoloniality and the Detective. Essays should
