CFP for MSA 18 (Pasadena, CA): Modernism's Planets
Planets colliding: Spivak, Friedman, Dimock. The 'planet', as metaphor, object, method, problem, and more, has made multiple entries into the discipline of literary studies, all of which bear on the study of modernism, broadly conceived. Ecocritical, postcolonial, and comparative methods have been at the forefront of the planetary conversation, but, as the word 'planet' suggests, there is more than enough room for more planetary interventions.

INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.
Volume 5 no.2 of the journal Culture and Dialogue (http://www.culture-dialogue.net) will focus on the theme 'History and Dialogue'. We welcome submissions that consider the relationship between history and dialogue from a variety of theoretical perspectives and case studies. The theme is flexible and may be addressed from a comparative or hermeneutical perspective. Relevant fields may include cultural studies, historical studies, philosophy and other domains.
The Call for Papers is open until the number, relevance and standard of contributions are met.
