Constructing South Asian National Identity in Literature and Film: Confluences on the Asian Subcontinent

When Partition created India, East Pakistan (later Bangladesh) and West Pakistan in 1947, the nationhood of these new states moved from the theoretical to the real in dramatic fashion, setting up complexities and contradictions that continue to reverberate into the present day. This panel will investigate the past, present, and future of these South Asian nations’ search for cultural identity in an examination of their fiction, poetry, and film. 

[ACLA 2018] Migratory Forms and Their Affective Challenges

This seminar probes the significance of poetic forms as an affective vehicle in the context of their cross-cultural circulation and adaptation. How do migratory forms preserve, permute, and perform their affective potential as they cross linguistic and cultural borders? How does the question of forms and their transcultural adaptability reconfigure the principle of (un)translatability? How does cross-cultural transference complicate the affective potentiality of a form? What does a form lose and gain in such processes of global translation? What are, if at all existent, the responsibilities of a poet experimenting with borrowed forms?

REMINDER: Modernism's World Languages

As Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz indicate in their article “The New Modernist Studies,” recent trends in modernist studies have operated a radical revision of the term “modernism,” moving away from the idea that modernism is confined to a single place (Europe, North America, and the West in general) or a single time (roughly 1890-1940). As the map of “transnational” and “global” modernisms expands, ever more attention has been given to new languages, phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism, and translation as a fundamental practice in modernist writing (Yao, Rogers).

From October 19 to October 21, 2017, the University of Louvain (UCL, Belgium) will host the Second Congress of the World Literature Association, titled “Center and Periphery: A New Approach to World Literature”.

 

Among others, Pascale Casanova’s and Franco Moretti’s works have demonstrated how relevant the notions of “center” and “periphery” are for studying the world literary system. Far from exhausting all the issues related to this binary approach to literature, such works have rather shown a set of aspects that are yet to be explored in the definition of a world literature and which are likely to bring a reconsideration of the latter from a diachronic as well as a synchronic point of view.
