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.

As the world still reels from the financial crisis of 2007-8 it seems timely to reflect on the connections between money and value embedded in all our discourses about economy, language and literature. Marxists and neoliberals have classically theorized this as reflecting the mechanisms of capitalism and the market. More recently, however, the literary theorist Marc Shell has seen the invention of coinage as underlying the whole of Western philosophy, while the anthropologist David Graeber has proposed that all of the great religions and political ideologies are responses to the moral confusion of money.

Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.

"If there is one thing in this world that I hate, it's losers. I despise them," then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared to a group of high school students, expressing a firm belief in success and failure as the results of individual action and ambition. Himself embodying the American Dream as an immigrant who 'made it big in America,' Schwarzenegger demeaned the worth of individuals he perceived to be 'losers,' and thus echoed an attitude prevalent in contemporary Western neoliberal politics that glorifies 'success,' i.e. striving for the good life, as the only valuable way of being in the world and as the ultimate goal of one's existence.
