Papers are invited for a two-day conference on Disnarration from 1st to 2nd March 2013, at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India.
Gerald Prince's introduction of the 'disnarrated' in 1988 marks an interesting milestone in the evolution of narrative theory. The notion of what could have, but does not happen in a narrative, opens up new ways of looking at texts and at their visibility, overt and implicit. An early landmark text in this tradition is Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey (1818), which raises the spectre of the gothic novel through irony and parody, precisely in order to refuse to narrate it.
Organized and hosted by Department of English, National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei, Taiwan
with the participation of Institut d'Études Transtextuelles et Transculturelles, Université Jean Moulin, Lyon, France

The Future State of Ireland is an interdisciplinary conference examining cultural responses to the economic crash. The conference will provide an opportunity for leading thinkers and practitioners across different disciplines to come together to discuss artists' and citizens' reactions and resilience in times of crisis and austerity.
We are looking for original chapters which take up the themes of transnationalism, family, kinship, and subject-formation mediated through new media technologies. The collection investigates phenomena of second orality, new literacy, and quasi-embodied modes of encounter within migration, nationalism and citizenship, including themes of indigeneity and colonialism.
