deadline for submissions:

This panel focuses on the use of American Indian Literary Nationalism as a framework for reading texts by Native authors. We will examine the ways in which AILN has been employed and has created new spaces for interpretations of Native literature.  Since the 2006 publication of the groundbreaking American Indian Literary Nationalism, scholars in the field of Native American Literature are re-evaluating the ways in which texts by Native authors are read. As well, subsequent works analyzing Native literatures using the methods of AILN have been instrumental in creating new spaces for interpretation. This panel focuses on the influence of AILN and its contributions specifically to the field of Native American Literature.

In a 2005 article for The New York Times, Canadian-Russian author and American academic Michael Ignatieff raised a provocative question: "Who Are Americans to Think That Democracy Is Theirs to Spread?" Surveying a range of critical responses to the US war in the Middle East, such as the idea that US involvement is economically self-serving, or that it facilitates the rise of increasingly repressive regimes, Ignatieff argues that the US has been ineffective, if not oppositional, in its stated aims of promoting democracy worldwide. This MELUS panel builds on SAMLA 88's theme of "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It" and perspectives like Ignatieff's to ask how multi-ethnic American writers position the US amidst the political unrest of their birth nation.

In The Tropics Bite Back, literary scholar Valérie Loichot highlights Maryse Condé’s urging of Caribbean writers to “bite back” (mordre en retour) at their respective colonial powers. One method, which Condé calls ‘literary cannibalism,’ has been employed by authors throughout the African diaspora. Examples include Zora Neale Hurston’s revisiting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in her short story “Spunk”, Condé’s own Windward Heights, a revision of Charlotte Brönte’s Victorian classic, and Alice Randall’s The Wind Done Gone.

Since the discovery of oil in the 1970s, Gulf Cooperation Countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) have employed a large expatriate labor force, primarily from neighboring South Asian Countries of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Philippines.  Recent studies claim that nearly 50.4% of the total population of the Gulf Cooperation Countries are expatriates.  Such mass emigration has not only allowed for the rapid economic expansion of these Gulf countries, but at the same time they have produced a number of cultural and socio-economic consequences for the countries from where Gulf’s primary work forces originate.

CFP: Virginia Woolf Miscellany special topics issue: Virginia Woolf and Indigenous Literatures This issue of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany seeks essays that consider Woolf’s oeuvre in dialogue with works by Native American, First Nations, Australian, and New Zealander authors, among others. What kind of dialogic emerges when placing Woolf’s writings alongside those of indigenous writers? How might indigenous literatures enhance interpretations of Woolf’s modernist, feminist, and pacifist poetics? How might such comparisons affect or inform understandings of subjectivity in women’s lives and literature, and the interconnections between narrative innovation and socio-political activism?
