Post-Modern Indian English Fiction
Gender, Space and Resistance: Women's Theatre in India
This multidisciplinary conference seeks papers and panels that explore representation of Maroon culture in history, literature, art, music, political theory, cultural studies, film, linguistics, and theatre. With its theme "The Return," it strives to revisit the roots of Maroon values and practices, considering the ways they have endured, transformed and resonated in the Caribbean, Canada, South America, Europe, the United States and Africa. Offering a unique combination of scholarly panels and cultural events, the third international Maroon conference aims to increase awareness of Maroon contributions to contemporary societies, bringing together descendents of Maroons with scholars interested in Maroon heritage and indigenous cultures.

As Toni Morrison observes in Playing in the Dark: Whiteness and the Literary Imagination (1993), "Race has become metaphorical—a way of referring to and disguising forces, events, classes, and expressions of social decay and economic division far more threatening to the body politic than biological 'race' ever was. [...] It seems that it has a utility far beyond economy, beyond the sequestering of classes from one another, and has assumed a metaphorical life so completely embedded in daily discourse that it is perhaps more necessary and more on display than ever before" (63).
The Literature and Science session of the RMMLA invites interpretive
papers focusing on science and its intersection with written
methods of transmission. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relationship of
individual writers to science and of certain scientists to
literary figures of their day; the combination of scientific
and literary methods of knowledge making. Papers focusing on
the representation or integration of science in specific
literary texts are especially encouraged. However, proposals
dealing with any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of
literature and science are welcome.
