This panel for the next ASLE conference seeks to offer a range of explorations of environmental and ecological themes in comics and graphic novels. Whereas the conference’s “Rust/Resistance” special topic (http://www.asle.org/wp-content/uploads/ASLE-2017-CFP.pdf) should provide cohesion to the panel, papers that expand the study of comics and graphic novels from any environmental lens are also welcome. Among others, the panel will be concerned with several questions, such as: What particular forms of visualization do comics and graphic novels offer us as conduits to imagine the environment?

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

This conference will be devoted to the discussion of recent developments affecting the production and reception of New Zealand and Pacific literary, visual and performance arts in a global context. It will focus on a range of issues related to the creation, reception, study, translation and marketing of these forms of expression. Whereas on the one hand New Zealand and Pacific arts are being created and circulated as deriving from culturally specific locations, they have also been received, translated, taught and marketed as part of the more broadly defined category of ‘world’ culture.

Coolies and the Legacy of Indentureship

At the “East Indians in the Caribbean Conference” in Trinidad in 1979, Sam Selvon disarmingly titled his opening address “Three into One Can’t Go—East Indian, Trinidadian or West Indian.” He presented the contradictions apparent in competing discourses of identification as the descendants of Indian indentured labourers sought to define themselves in their national and regional contexts. Selvon’s underlying question of how (formerly) indentured labourers establish a sense of belonging in their new environment is applicable to other sites of indentureship like Guyana, Jamaica, Mauritius, Suriname, and Fiji. Another identifying label that should be added to Selvon’s triad is coolie, a pejorative that some Indians have sought to reclaim.
