Stages in Transition: South Asia and the Diaspora

 

Hunter College

City University of New York

 

April 29, 2017

 

Theater of South Asia and the diaspora is a rich topic for exploration, particularly in our current political climate, in which questions of cultural identity, citizenship, personal and cultural expression, movement between cultures and geographic borders are all at the forefront of public discourse globally. How do place and space, our understanding of home and belonging come to inflect the theater that we make?

Historicizing Forms and Spaces of Refuge

The MLA Forum TC History and Literature invites proposals for a guaranteed panel at the 2018 MLA Convention in New York City (January 4-7, 2018).

We are seeking historically-situated papers on how literary forms construct, influence, and are influenced by spaces of refuge, asylum, sanctuary, and migration.

While recent public attention has turned toward humanitarian crises that have resulted in forced displacement, as well as debates about the legalities and moral consequences of documenting and registering immigrants, we welcome essays from a range of times and places, not limited to the United States or Britain in the present moment.
