Consequences of "the Fall": Growth and Decline in Medieval and Early Modern Literary Culture

Very few aspects of late medieval and early modern literature and culture remain untouched by the Fall, concepts of original sin, and considerations of man's place in a postlapsarian world. Concerns over the state of the soul, right governance and maintenance of the commonweal, and engagement with the natural world were shaded by a need to recoup the loss incurred by the expulsion from Eden.

Editor, Nation & Its Discontents

Contributions are sought for an edited volume titled "Nation and Its Discontents" focusing on South Asia. The question concerning how to produce and disseminate knowledge on the 'nation', functioning as both an idea and a polity, without dispelling the 'cultural differences', calls for re-conceptualizing spaces, identities, diasporas etc. beyond western perception of nationhood. The 'nation-state', as often been argued, is an overtly restrictive projection of a model derived from western European experience onto the non-West where it may/does not apply.
