Locating Post-45 @ UPenn, March 19-20, 2015

Monday, November 24, 2014 - 8:58pm
University of Pennsylvania


On March 19-20, 2015, Penn English will host Locating Post-45, a conference organized around the periodizing category of the Post-1945. A term that has emerged as an organizing principle for twentieth-century literary studies, we want to probe its curious, and perhaps provisional, durability. The conference would like to generate new considerations of the locations and worldedness of Post-1945 by examining its ever-branching critical crosscurrents.

Panel Description:


Monday, November 24, 2014 - 6:36am
Indian Society for Commonwealth Studies

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: Prospects and Perspectives

Sunday, November 23, 2014 - 8:30pm
Pachaiyappa's College, Chennai-30, India

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.
