The concept of ‘identity’ has of late acquired much resonance inside and outside academia. Identity has become in today’s globalized world more fundamental than ever before to the endeavor of addressing theoretical and political issues relating to ‘nationality,’ ‘nation (-state) borders,’  ‘history,’ ‘ethnicity,’ and other, perhaps more urgent, issues of ethnic conflicts, immigration, and refugees. The complexity of each of these entities and the interplay of most of them point, together, to the insufficiencies apparent in those ‘fixed’ understandings of the concept of identity.

Joint SALA-MLA panel: Image-Text Encounters in South Asian Graphic Narratives

updated: 
Thursday, March 8, 2018 - 10:36am
South Asian Literary Association and Modern Language Association Joint Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

Papers invited for the joint (guaranteed) South Asian Literary Association-MLA panel exploring the incorporation of South Asian visual and literary traditions in the subcontinent’s comics. Inspired by the MLA 2019 theme of “textual transactions,” this panel explores the constitutive relations among South Asian graphic narratives and the region’s local, folk and national visual as well as literary cultures. This panel is interested in teasing out what makes South Asian graphic narratives' image-text interactions distinct from that of Western comics. What visual frames of reference do they rely on? How are image and text mutually constitutive in Indian graphic narratives?

Long Island Sound and the coast of Connecticut and its bordering states are the primary focus, but given the inherently global nature of maritime zones, our oceanic connections to other regions will also be considered.
