Postcolonial literature (variously termed as Commonwealth Literature or New Literatures in English) started with the examination of literature produced under the influence of colonizers during the colonial rule, but has expanded into a multi-disciplinary engagement covering even the literatures produced in settler colonies of yore. The colonized-colonizer paradigm has been transferred to the ruling structures within the freed countries to address the plight of the subaltern. The ideology of postcolonialism has impacted other ideologies like Marxism, Feminism and Nationalism besides re-writing concepts like diaspora, subjectivity, etc.

Multi-ethnic literature is a fast growing field of contemporary literary studies. The field is vast and needs ample attention to deal with issues on ethnicity caste and race. If the function of literature is to serve as a mirror of society then multi-ethnic literature in advance pays due attention to the problems of the minorities and the oppressed. MELUS (Multi-Ethnic Literature in United States) with more than forty ethnic groups still requires intense exploratory, analytical and comparative study and research. The study of race and ethnic problems of United States in a way provides a model and offers different perspectives to approach caste and religious issues of India.

The 4th Annual English Graduate Student Association Conference
Georgetown University
February 21, 2015
Keynote address by Jed Esty, PhD

Deadline for Proposals: December 31st, 2014

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.

Italo Calvino once asked, "Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while this question maintains its relevance, it is about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts we produce and the environments in which they are produced.
