On July 1, 2017, ESC: English Studies in Canada will be moving from its long-time home at the University of Alberta to its new residence at Western University. To mark this occasion, and as a parting editorial gesture, the Co-Editors will publish a special issue on the theme of “transitions.” The theme avails itself of multiple disciplinary, theoretical, methodological, cultural, political, historical, and other contextual investments. In recognizing that broad applicability, our capacious understanding of the term is designed to invite widespread and diverse interest.

Ecology in the Particular

Contemporary environmental criticism has embraced the ecological as an occasion for thinking interconnectedness at ever-increasing spatial and temporal scales. This trend in ecological thinking has been aided by justifiably popular concepts such as planetary action, geological time, and of course, the Anthropocene. Without denying the urgency of planetary thinking, we propose to investigate ecology in “the particular.”

Africa and the World: Literature, Politics, and Global Geographies

The theme chosen for the 2017 conference at Yale seeks to engage with and interrogate recent shifts in critical and theoretical frameworks from regional, national, and “postcolonial” models towards “world literature” as a framework for understanding the literatures of the Global South. How useful is the category of world literature in our ongoing contestation of Eurocentrism in the interpretation of African literatures and cultures? What possibilities are offered by African literatures and cultures for (re)imagining the world, including the “world” posited by recent theorizations?

Contemporaneity and the Global South

For the last two decades, critical approaches to literature of the global south have taken for granted the importance of history in shaping the present. The ongoing consequences of colonialism, nationalism, partitions, civil wars and other forms of actual and epistemic violence have been taken as key optics for understanding the crises and possibilities of the present. On the other hand, in many cases the discourse of futurity has been usurped by the proponents of neoliberalism who imagine that capitalism will release the formerly colonized countries from history’s handcuffs and pave the way toward a bold new future.

NeMLA 2017: Le corps masculin arabe comme objet de désir dans la littérature et le cinéma queer francophone

From Baudelaire to Genet, a great number of Caucasian Europeans have been attracted to the ideal the Arab man presented to them, whether it be because of his exotic nature, or because the masculine ideal associated with the Arab man was an impetus of objectification. This objectification can also be found in the pornographic industry. Jean-Daniel Cadinot is a porn director famous for producing a great number of movies glorifying as well as objectifying Maghrebian men, making them the object of the desire of young Caucasians.
