Asian Literature Session at PAMLA 2017

Chaminade University of Honolulu

http://pamla.org/2017

The Asian Literature standing session of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) is accepting proposals for the organization's 115th annual conference. The session welcomes proposals dealing with "Asia" and "literature" broadly conceived, from a wide range of historical periods. While this year's special sessions theme is "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing", the Asian Literature session aims to put in conversation papers that analyze issues of power and ideology more generally.

“Terrorism will spill over if you don’t speak up” – Malala Yousafzai

Terror and violence have become markers of the times that we live in. Violence has become endemic in all walks of life. We experience violence at home and outside, both in private and public spheres. Violence manifests in different forms - as domestic, caste, communal, ethnic, racial, gender, national and state violence. In its extreme form, violence takes the form of terror and threatens human security. Practically no country or community appears to be safe in the post-9/11 world that we live in.

Earlier this year a river revered by the local Mauri people in New Zealand has been granted legal rights as a living entity. This first incident was then succeeded by a court’s decision in India to grant the rivers Ganges and Yamuna the status of living beings. Not all parts of the earth benefit from such legal protection as evidenced by the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul in 2013 and by the Dakota Pipeline protests more recently.

CFP: Afropolitan Literature as World Literature (edited collection, Bloomsbury Publishing)

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Afropolitanism currently inflects many academic and popular conversations about African literature. The term is mobilized to celebrate African influence in the world and to characterize the proliferation of African literature that is disconnected from the daily lives of average people residing on the continent. It refuses victimhood for Africans in the wake of patronizing representations by the likes of CNN, BBC, and KONY 2012 and sells a version of Africa ready-made for western reading tastes.  It represents a formidable ideology formulated by Achille Mbembe, among others, and a way to sell $30 novelty T-shirts to American hipsters.

Lives in Transit: Subjectivity in the Age of Migration (NeMLA 2018)

More than thirty years ago, Edward Said wrote in Reflections on Exile that “our age...is indeed the age of the refugee, the displaced person, mass immigration.” As migration becomes increasingly recognized as integral to contemporary societies, how does transit become central to how we understand urban spaces, communities, and the experiences of individuals within them? We understand transit as the movement of people, ideas, memories, or emotions, and what Jodi Byrd has described as “liminal existence” in “ungrievable spaces.” In what ways does the concept of "transit" model a rethinking of the relationship between individuals and postcolonial geographies? How does mobility constitute movement through both physical and ontological space?
