Place as Archive in 20th and 21st Century Literatures

This panel aims to explore the ways in which physical place has become archival within 20th and 21st century literatures. One of the most obvious examples may be the ways in which place is archival in post-9/11 literatures, but this panel welcomes varied and original interpretations of place as archive.

CFP: Anthology—Tagore and Yeats: A Postcolonial Re-Envisioning

Dr. Amrita Ghosh & Dr. Elizabeth Redwine, Seton Hall University

Rabindranath Tagore and William Butler Yeats met at a dinner on July 7, 1912, at William Rothenstein's Hampstead home in England. At a turning point in Yeats' writing life, meeting Tagore was revolutionary, and the ensuing collaborations were both fruitful and problematic. This literary friendship had far reaching impacts on both writers' careers with Tagore catapulting into international fame and eventually getting the Nobel Prize within a year. However, the meteoric friendship also saw a curious fall-out that raises questions about translations, approaches to nationalism, postcoloniality and representation.

[UPDATE] Between Vulnerability and Resilience: Representations of Veil in Literature, Film, and Fine Arts

The veil's ancient and modern history and its resurgence in our time is an important subject for discussion for those of us posing new questions about women and Islam in literature, film, and fine arts. In Europe and the U.S., the veil is often presented through errors of conceptualizations. The media, in particular, seems to be obsessed with the role of the veil. Recurrently, these discussions run along essentialist and ahistorical lines associating Islam with the ideology of shame and honor. Moreover, the Muslim immigrant "problem" in Europe and the U.S. and the fear of Islam and Muslims in connection with terrorism has heightened the controversy on the issue of the veil.
