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

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.

Special Section on Soviet and Post-Soviet Shakespeares in The Shakespearean International Yearbook (2019)

We invite contributions for a special section on Soviet and post-Soviet engagements with Shakespearean drama and Shakespeare as a culturally significant figure. We are particularly interested in ideologically influenced performance, translation, literary adaptation, and scholarship. Papers might focus on how Soviet approaches to Shakespeare were influenced by the evolution of cultural policies from 1917 to 1991, or examine treatments of Shakespeare in post-Soviet states from 1991 until the present. Contributors are also encouraged to consider Soviet and post-Soviet Shakespeare in languages other than Russian.

Panel at Modernist Studies Association 2017 Conference (Amsterdam)

CFP: Global Modernism and Media

 

Modernism as distinctly international is largely discussed through the movement or migration of artists and writers in the multinational metropolitan centers. Despite the global reach of practitioners, there were still many who did not share the same mobility and direct access to traditional artistic centers. We wish to open up the discussion to a different kind of transnational network that fostered reciprocal exchanges and collaboration among cultural producers between the center and periphery.

MLA 2018: Questioning Precarity

The Africa since 1990 forum of the MLA invites submission of abstracts for a non-guaranteed panel titled “Questioning Precarity” at the 2018 Annual Convention. As a concept, precarity has been associated with a retrenchment of the state, erosion of Fordist production and casualization of labor, among others, especially in the Global North. Precarity is less frequently invoked with respect to the repeated failures of the state, dysfunctional economies, and rampant informalization of labor that have long been hallmarks of societies in Africa and elsewhere in the Global South.
