Didactics and the Modern Robinsonadefor Young Adults – Edited Collection

 

The literary and historical influence of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe on the Western literary canon cannot be overstated. Its publication heralded the arrival of the novel form and engendered greater public interest in reading literature in the eighteenth century. It was Rousseau who said of Robinson Crusoe that it is “the one book that teaches all that books can teach”. Indeed, in his treatise Emilius and Sophia: or, A New System of Education, Rousseau advocated for the use of Defoe’s novel as an instructional tool for the education of young minds, wanting Emilius to read only Defoe during his formative years.

This panel calls for a reassessment of Austin Clarke’s writing. While Clarke was one of Canada’s earliest, most prolific, and most awarded writers, scholarship on his work remains scarce. This critical neglect is particularly surprising given his foundational role in Canadian literature; his first short stories predate Frye’s articulation of ‘where is here?’ This neglect has not gone wholly unnoticed: W.J. Keith describes his Clarke’s writing as “characteristically neglected” and Clarke’s biographer, Stella Algoo Baksh argues that there is “a dearth of comprehensive examinations of Clarke’s life and writing.”

CFP ASLE 2017: Comics, Graphic Novels, and the Environment (June 20-24 2017, Detroit)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 25, 2016

This panel for the next ASLE conference seeks to offer a range of explorations of environmental and ecological themes in comics and graphic novels. Whereas the conference’s “Rust/Resistance” special topic (http://www.asle.org/wp-content/uploads/ASLE-2017-CFP.pdf) should provide cohesion to the panel, papers that expand the study of comics and graphic novels from any environmental lens are also welcome. Among others, the panel will be concerned with several questions, such as: What particular forms of visualization do comics and graphic novels offer us as conduits to imagine the environment?

We are looking for your contribution as part of our panel at the 2017 Asian American Studies Association taking place in Portland, Oregon, April 13–15, 2017. This panel seeks to bring together Asian American scholarship on the Vietnam War and Korean War to interrogate the workings of U.S. empire in Asia across the Cold War era and into the present. How did prior imperial formations, including Japanese and French colonialism, shape U.S. imperial interests in East and Southeast Asia? How did these wars interrupt processes of decolonization? What kinds of diasporas did they create? What has been the cultural memory of these wars in these diasporas? How has our understanding of one war informed the other?

(due 10/7) South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities

"South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities" -- paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention (March 23-26, 2017, Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.).

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.
