The Martineau Society will be hosting its annual conference in Hull, England from July 24 to July 27, 2017.  The Martineau Society conference is an interdisciplinary conference that focuses on the lives, work, and contributions of the Martineau family, including its two most famous and influential members, Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) and James Martineau (1805-1900).

Started by Norwich Unitarians in 1994, the Martineau Society encourages scholarship on the Martineau family and their nineteenth-century context as well as their continuing influence.  Topics may include, but are not limited to the following:

Indialogs Spanish Journal of India Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

Issue 5 of Indialogs will focus on the theme of the body from a wide range of perspectives.  The representation of the human body in Indian culture differs enormously from the West.  Women were closely associated with fertility, abundance and prosperity rather than sin and temptation, and sexuality has been embraced openly as can be seen in many temples all over the country.

MLA 2018: Questioning Precarity

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Africa since 1990 forum of the MLA invites submission of abstracts for a non-guaranteed panel titled “Questioning Precarity” at the 2018 Annual Convention. As a concept, precarity has been associated with a retrenchment of the state, erosion of Fordist production and casualization of labor, among others, especially in the Global North. Precarity is less frequently invoked with respect to the repeated failures of the state, dysfunctional economies, and rampant informalization of labor that have long been hallmarks of societies in Africa and elsewhere in the Global South.

Cultures of Violence in South Asia EditorialSpecial Issue of Kairos: A Journal of Critical Symposium (Vol.2, Issue 1, 2017) While the Indian Subcontinent lays claim to a rich legacy of anti-colonialism borne out of Gandhian ideals of non-violence, it is fraught with periodic flare-ups of violence between the state, insurgency groups, religious organizations, among a wide spectrum of other actors. It could even be argued that the violence has been congenital to the nation-state formation in the Indian Subcontinent, as exemplified in the rich literary tradition of the Partition narratives by SaadatManto, Ahmed Ali, Khushwant Singh, and Bapsi Sidhwa.
