What is Home?

Friday, October 28, 2016 - 10:09am
New Voices Graduate Conference-Department of English, Georgia State University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 2, 2016

The 2017 New Voices Graduate Student Conference invites submissions that consider the concept of home. The critic George Steiner has called twentieth-century Western Literature “extraterritorial.” The twenty-first century has continued in this diasporic trend, with unprecedented numbers of individuals fleeing their homelands as refugees, migrants, and exiles. This questions the significance of the concept of home as a category of meaning or relation within fixed boundaries. Home appears in the articulation of individual and collective forms of identity, in affective relations, and in public discourse. Home can be both a place or a space. Has this concept shaped your perception in anyway? Has it led to discoveries within your own work?

How do we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers – either physical, social or mental? Can we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers? Can Nicosia – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – invite and inspire us to write it, to be creative because of and about it?

We invite contributions from writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English for the forthcoming anthology Writing Nicosia… beyond barriers.

CFP Special Issue: Climates of Disaster and Performance

What are the conditions in which performance happen or is made, in the wake of or in response to a disaster? But we can be more expansive and ask how performance can be linked to disaster, if performance perchance may be thought in the terms of a disastrous event, how such thinking takes on board the implications of linking these two terms: disaster and performance and what possibilities are opened for a politics and ethics of performance.
