Cha: An Asian Literary Journal (http://www.asiancha.com) is now accepting submissions for "Writing Japan," an edition of the journal devoted to work from and/or about Japan.

Our special issue "Writing Japan" encompasses writing from and/or about Japan, broadly imagined. We hope to feature work by Japanese writers and non-Japanese writers writing in relation to Japan, as well as work that challenges fixed ideas about Japanese identity and the Japanese experience. We are looking for idiosyncratic and intelligent work that explores the various meanings of "Writing Japan."

Authorial literary translation 

            The study of any national literary system cannot exclude a comparative approach and an investigation into the function of translations. Our aim in this monographic issue is to study works translated by leading writers in international literary cultures (not exclusively European), and then analyse the role of these translations in the formation of supranational literary canons.

The leading writers of various literary traditions have in fact very often translated foreign works themselves by turning, on occasions, to translation as a fundamental practice for personal enrichment to creative and stylistic ends.

Historicizing Forms and Spaces of Refuge

The MLA Forum TC History and Literature invites proposals for a guaranteed panel at the 2018 MLA Convention in New York City (January 4-7, 2018).

We are seeking historically-situated papers on how literary forms construct, influence, and are influenced by spaces of refuge, asylum, sanctuary, and migration.

While recent public attention has turned toward humanitarian crises that have resulted in forced displacement, as well as debates about the legalities and moral consequences of documenting and registering immigrants, we welcome essays from a range of times and places, not limited to the United States or Britain in the present moment.

Subaltern Women’s Narratives: Subversion, Resilience, and Shifting Responses

updated: 
Monday, February 6, 2017 - 12:04pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 23, 2017

This conference aims to look at the material histories and lives of subaltern women. In her 1988 essay ‘Can the Subaltern Speak?’, Gayatri Spivak extends the definition of the ‘subaltern’, going beyond “strict class analysis”, to incorporate a range of different subject positions, not predefined by dominant political discourses. We draw on her definition in our usage of the word ‘subaltern’, to focus on the experience of marginalised women in the present day. Most of the current academic discourse on subaltern women concentrates heavily on narratives of subjugation. However, the varied nature of lived experiences of these women has presented challenges in the knowledge and understanding of their experiences through an overarching critical narrative.
