IRISH STUDIES at SAMLA- Nov. 8-10, 2013

Writing Ireland: Identity, Memory, and Place

In keeping with the special focus of SAMLA 85, we welcome papers that focus on the ways Irish identity, space, and memory are shaped through conventionally understood literary genres (poetry, fiction, drama, memoir) as well as work from related fields, including but not limited to art, critical theory, folklore, and film studies. This panel seeks to address recent trends in scholarship and the ways Irish identity (systemic or individual) and space are constructed and defined.

In Hip Hop Wars, Tricia Rose argues that, "Hip Hop has become a primary means by which we talk about race in the United States." Rose's insight delves into the historical evolution of the genre and the sociological progression of the movement called Hip Hop. More importantly, Rose's inquiry of Hip Hop admits that Hip Hop has become an important apparatus by which critics, scholars, and artists can engage and examine the American social, personal, public, and private landscapes.

[UPDATE] National Seminar on "Modernity and Indian Theatre", September 27 & 28, 2013

Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 2:16am
Department of English, Gauhati University

'Modern' Indian theatre is fashioned by western as well as indigenous theatrical traditions. This theatre as we know it is also urban, having evolved from its early avatars in 19th century Bombay and Kolkata, to the multifaceted, national and postcolonial construct that it is today. Current ideas of the 'modern' and 'modernity' become more complex and throw up remarkably challenging questions when looked at through the prism of Indian theatre and theatre criticism. It is difficult to define 'modern' Indian theatre as a discipline with specific inbuilt notions of modernity that renders it significantly different from its earlier phases.

SAMLA Chairpersons

Chairpersons of the 2012-2014 SAMLA 9/11 and Literature special sessions seek high quality, previously unpublished submissions to supplement a strong collection of essays emerging from the 2012 and 2013 annual SAMLA conventions, entitled New Narratives of Disaster and Crisis: Reflecting on 9/11in the Obama Era. The aim of this collection is to open discussion on a new wave of cultural response to 9/11 and we invite scholarly essays (6,000-7,000 words) on topics relating to the newer representations and/or interpretations of 9/11, including both visual and literary texts. These representations have moved beyond the commemorative and heroic becoming increasingly reflexive and politicized.
