Monday, July 31, 2017


This CFP begins from the assumption that modernity and modernization have had deeply contested legacies in the Global South.  While postcolonial frames have elaborated several rich possibilities to engage with these legacies, we are interested in papers that interrogate and/or extend postcolonial frameworks for thinking about modernization and modernity from the perspective of environmental and ecological questions.


Papers can include but are not limited to some of the following themes.

En Route: Travel, Transport, Transit

Monday, July 24, 2017 - 1:32pm
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Accounts of migration and displacement often focus on the bounded terrains of specific cities and the navigation of certain rooted sites, places of origin and/or destination. At the same time, cartographic and spatial terminology (e.g. “mapping,” “space,” “place,” “orientation”) are used in increasingly metaphorical ways, at the possible expense of more historical and/or materialist approaches to theorizing the global, the planetary, and the transnational. This panel invites contributors to examine the affective as well as material dimensions of being ‘in transit,’ the enabling condition of more familiar narrative tropes of exile, migration, travel and displacement.
