The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

    We welcome a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates. Thus we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and/or cross-cultural panel proposals.

ACLA 2020 The Poetics and Politics of Eco-Cosmopolitanism in Contemporary World Literature

In the light of the material turn in the humanities and social sciences, there has been an increasing interest in material contexts, embodied experiences, and situated forms of knowledge. In this context, Ursula K. Heise  emphasizes the urgency of developing an ideal of “eco-cosmopolitanism,” or environmental world citizenship, observing that it is ‘imperative to reorient current U.S. environmentalist discourse, ecocriticism included, toward a more nuanced understanding of how both local cultural and ecological systems are imbricated in global ones’ (2008, 59). Heise’s remark envisions individuals and groups as a part of planetary “imagined communities,” with both human and nonhuman members.

[REMINDER - last days to submit] Unflattening the Encounter: Translation, Travel, and Place: NeMLA 2020

How can we apprehend the “terms of translation” shaping the construction and circulation of texts and artifacts across space and time? What sites and contexts of cultural and linguistic encounter move us to question those terms? Translation can be understood as always entangled with its surroundings, in tension with and inseparable from the place of its construction and of its reception at different times and places, suggesting that the complexity of language relations can remain constant across sites of inquiry; it can also have a flattening effect for the receiver, often blurring the line between “speaking of” and “speaking for”, and obscuring the networks of actors and processes involved in its making.
