“Doing southern studies is unmasking and refusing the binary thinking--‘North’/‘South,’ nation/South, First World/Third World, self/other--that postcolonial studies has taught us is the most damaging rhetorical structure of empire. Doing southern studies is thinking geographically, thinking historically, thinking relationally, thinking about power, thinking about justice, thinking back.”             --Scott Romaine & Jennifer Rae Greeson

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Discussing the epic and the novel, Mikhail Bakhtin refers to a “historical struggle of genres” that underwrites “the establishment and growth of a generic skeleton of literature.” Literature as a diverse discursive domain consists of various forms and genres that shape and functionalize it. There is a thin line between specific literary forms and genres. Is novel a form or genre? If novel is a form, we can think of particular genres of the novel such as gothic, whodunit, comedy, historical drama and so on. On the other hand, if novel is a genre, there are literary forms such as realism, naturalism, pastiche, parody, etc.
