Weighing the Anthropocene

updated: 
Monday, May 1, 2017 - 1:10pm
ASLE at the 2017 Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts Conference 9-12 November 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 12, 2017

This ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and Environment) panel at the 31st annual meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts in Tempe, AZ 9-12 November, invites 15-minute papers that address the conference theme in terms of the Anthropocene. What might be lost and/or what might be gained with this new measure of geological time, and what it might mean to weigh and measure -- to demarcate meaning or value -- in an age at once characterized by a new awareness of vertiginous scale and complex interconnection, and by the seeming collapse of agency itself into a singularity, an idea of "Man"?

MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

updated: 
Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 12:28pm
Modern Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

Deadline Extended: CFP for Postcolonial Interventions, Vol.II, Issue 2 (June 2017)

Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 16, 2017

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.
