REOPENED: The[?] Archive- special edition of the journal Critical Survey

updated: 
Tuesday, April 7, 2015 - 1:42pm
Critical Survey

In almost a reactionary response to New Criticism and a development from Historicism, literary researchers are using archival research more and more to develop textual analysis. Whether this research is more historically based or is textual to the point of analysing printing ink and the construction of a text, special collections, museum, and archives are considered a valuable resource. Even in the abstract, the idea of 'the' archive, while being embraced is simultaneously being challenged both for its exclusions and its very definition. How has the/an archive or the very idea of an archive affected/enhanced your own work?

Monday, April 6, 2015 - 5:50pm
UFMG, PósLit

This issue aims to elicit discussions about the literary and cultural productions that have emerged from the process of colonization and post-colonial experience in English-speaking countries, as well as the expansion of these historical experiences through cross-cultural dialogues. It is, therefore, the investigation of the transits of literary, artistic, and cultural repertoires in English, aiming to comprehend the networks and flows of critical or theoretical references about these productions in the various stages of the colonization and post-colonial period.
