“Doing southern studies is unmasking and refusing the binary thinking--‘North’/‘South,’ nation/South, First World/Third World, self/other--that postcolonial studies has taught us is the most damaging rhetorical structure of empire. Doing southern studies is thinking geographically, thinking historically, thinking relationally, thinking about power, thinking about justice, thinking back.”             --Scott Romaine & Jennifer Rae Greeson

This open issue invites essays related to the broader project of Verge: Studiesin Global Asias, which showcases scholarship on “Asian” topics from across the humanities and humanistic social sciences, while recognizing that the changing scope of “Asia” as a concept and method is today an object of vital critical concern. Deeply transnational and transhistorical in scope, Verge emphasizes thematic and conceptual links among the disciplines and regional/area studies formations that address Asia in a variety of particularist (national, subnational, individual) and generalist (national, regional, global) modes.

ENGLISH and englishes: Culture, Power, Politics in a Neo-liberalist Regime

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 4:22pm
Department of English, Bankura University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 10, 2019

The destiny of English / englishes was perhaps foreshadowed long back in 1975 by George Steiner in his Presidential Address to the English Association in London: “…the linguistic centre of English has shifted”. This shifting terrain came to be further reified in terms of expansive movements beyond the borders of traditionally recognised territories.

With the exhaustion of postcolonial models, it is time we tried to break free of conventional straitjackets. In a neo-liberalist world order, that almost runs co-extensive with the free market economy and transnational political diplomacy, cultural disciplinary models are establishing an innovative paradigm shift.
