The intended volume will offer brief introductions (250-300 words) to the best novels written after 1950 in any language other than English that are available in English translation.

The formula we are looking for is that of The Modern Library: The Best 200 English Novels since 1950 (eds. Carmen Callil and Colm Tóibín), first published in 1999. In fact, the intended volume will respond to Callil and Tóibín’s by providing a similar list of novels coming from all over the world.

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.

Historical Dialogue

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 2:43pm
Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

Historical dialogue is a growing field of scholarship and practice that engages with the legacy of historical violence and its ties to contemporary politics. It is informed by the recognition that many contemporary conflicts germinate from the memory of past violence, and it is particularly pertinent for the field of conflict transformation and prevention in conflict and post-conflict societies. By its very nature, then, historical dialogue is multidisciplinary, taking place within academic disciplines as well as (but not exclusively) with law, journalism, education, film, art, and literature.
