Feasting, Fasting, Famine: Representations of Hunger in South Asian Literatures and Culture

The South Asian and South Asian Diasporic Forum of the MLA invites proposals on theorizing the politics, aesthetics, ethics, affect, of figurations of hunger in South Asian literatures and cultures. Presentations may focus on hunger in a range of contexts including food insecurity and globalization; class, gender, imperial, postcolonial contexts; on memory, and memorialization, and the historiography of hunger. Among other contexts/aspects, papers may focus on hunger and the state; hunger and violence; hunger and migration; philanthropy/famine relief: a fundamental right or charity? Visual representations of hunger.

Traveling With Gulliver, around Campus--3/24

Joel Sodano, University at Albany & Michael Brown, University of Aberdeen

This call is inspired by the versatile, prescient and even protean prose of Dr. Swift's most well-known work, Gulliver's Travels (1726). If Gulliver had a "tenure home," it would definitely be in the department of English; however, because of its relevance to so many disciplinary fields (economics, history, philosophy, to name the most obvious) Gulliver's Travels is finding itself in an increasingly interdisciplinary range of college courses. We're seeking a variety of pedagogy-oriented submissions that give insight into the ways Gulliver's Travels is taught in higher education.
Here are some possible issues that the collection might explore:
