Animal Studies and American Indian Literatures

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 - 2:18pm
Dustin Gray and Brian K. Hudson

We are now accepting submissions for a collection of essays to be potentially published in a special issue of Studies in American Indian Literatures focusing on the intersections of Animal Studies and American Indian literatures. The proliferation of scholarly attention in the humanities to animals has been evident in the last decade. In 2009, both the journal of the Modern Language Association (PMLA, March issue) and the Chronicle of Higher Education (October issue) gave considerable space to the study of the relationships between human and nonhuman animals.

Topics on American Indian literatures may include but are not limited to:

South Asian Popular Culture - Special Issue

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 - 12:36pm
Priya Jha, University of Redlands

Intensive Bollywood: Media and Nonlinear History in South Asia
Special Issue: South Asian Popular Culture, October 2011

How do we approach the emergence of various media forms? From radio to the mobile phone, from tamashas to Bollywood, different affects and novel perceptions resonate with new media ecologies. These media processes are covered over by a form of criticism that takes the actual media form for history itself. We are interested in returning criticism to the nonlinear field of potentiality from which these actual media forms emerge. The dominance of Hindi-Urdu cinema in South Asian media studies has shaped popular cultural criticism, to the point of often occluding this history.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 - 7:44am
Abigail Gardner and Dr. Ros Jennings, University of Gloucestershire

Rock On': women, ageing and popular music investigates a series of increasingly important issues for popular music studies relating to age and performance. The book comprises of a collection of essays which focus on influential women performers and explores the ways that their ageing has impacted on their performance strategies, star persona and their relationships with audiences and the popular music press. These aspects amplify and intersect with issues of genre, sexuality, and race that are at the heart of academic studies of popular music artists.

History and Migration: "Beyond the Border, Behind the Men. The Invisibility of Female Migration"

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 - 7:29am
University of the Basque Country - Department of Modern and American History

The main subject of the meeting will be the study of female migration. We would like to propose to open an space for the reflexion on both the relevance of female migration as an autonomous process within the general frame of historical migratory processes, especially overseas, and the supposed "invisibility" that still afects the knowledge of this important chapter. Actually, there have been some degree of misunderstanding, and even unknownness, on the role played by women in the development of migrations, from the very first moment of taking the decision of migrate, to the processes of adaptation and integration in the host society, as well as their role in the transmission of ethnic features as language, religion or customs from the Old country.
