[UPDATE] Transnational Narratives of Performed Exile and Englishness

Catalina Florina Florescu, Pace University

The ongoing events in Europe concerning the "migrant crisis" have made me rethink of the scope of my collection, "Transnational Narratives of Performed Exile and Englishness." The edited volume already has a solid number of contributors, but given the very urgent nature of millions of refugees who seek hope and a new life in Europe, as an editor and a scholar I would be remiss if this volume did not invite scholars to reflect on the current situation in Europe. I seek 3 chapters that address this issue. The approach could be from a journalistic point of view and/or a personal, reflective essay. Please contact me at fflorescu@pace.edu or ravaseala@gmail.com

UPDATE - 25th Annual British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference - February 26-27, 2016 - Savannah GA

Friday, September 25, 2015 - 1:11pm
BCPCS Conference

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

We welcome a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates. Thus we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and/or cross-cultural panel proposals.

In 2015, the University of Edinburgh Press launched a multivolume series of scholarly, refereed anthologies entitled ReFocus. Edited by Robert Singer (CUNY Graduate Center, Liberal Studies) and Gary D. Rhodes (Queens University, Belfast), each book focuses on a critically overlooked American film director who worked in the studio system, independent cinema, experimental filmmaking, or documentary tradition. The volumes to be published this year focus on Preston Sturges, Amy Heckerling, Delmer Daves, Ida Lupino, and Budd Boetticher.
