“The philosophy of lying can be full of dark corners” (Saint Augustine, On Lying, 395 A.D.). Over time, in all spheres of the human experience, the attempts to define the concept of ‘lying’ have been numerous and have resulted in a dichotomous relationship with either ‘truth’ or ‘reality’. Both elusive and tempting, lying is a mode of communicate and influence others’ beliefs and behaviours which reveals itself in a wide range of forms: imagination, creation, invention, artifice, (dis)simulation, omission, pretence, change, disfiguration, deception, forgery, manipulation, etc.

CFP: WHY WORLD LITERATURE? (Deadline May 15, 2017)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 15, 2017

The emergence of ‘world literature’ as a critical framework of reading in literary studies has not only recalibrated older methodologies of comparative and postcolonial literature but has also foregrounded the aspect of circulation and reception of literary works in a transnational context. The emphasis that this method of reading puts on the cross-cultural travels of a literary text is reinforced by the global technology of social media and web 2.0 which promises instant connectedness and conjures a virtual world which is self-contained, even though it reflects and engages with the actual world of the socio-political, outside itself.

MLA 2018: Leonora Carrington at 100

updated: 
Monday, February 20, 2017 - 2:09pm
Andrew Ferguson
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel seeks to build on the resurgence of interest in the work of Anglo-Mexican surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington inaugurated at her death in 2011 at age 94, and continuing through major career retrospectives in Dublin (2013) and Liverpool (2015). For many years, criticism on her writings has been held up by the relative unavailability of her works. Forthcoming centennial reissues of her complete stories (Dorothy Project) as well as her memoir, Down Below (NYRB Classics), however, offer the chance to resituate her work within recent scholarly work on modernism, surrealism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, gender studies and sexuality, trauma studies and neurodiversity, translation studies, and more.
