African Modernisms, African Modernities (April 7-10 2011)

updated: 
Monday, September 6, 2010 - 9:12pm
NEMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)

In 1958, Chinua Achebe opened his most famous novel with an epigraph from an Irish modernist poem that has been taken as one of the quintessential articulations of modernity: "Turning and turning in the widening gyre / The falcon cannot hear the falconer, / Things fall apart, the center cannot hold." This moment is suggestive of the intersection between modernism and modernity in African literature, a conjuncture that can be partially viewed in terms of how African writers respond to Western literary tradition. Attempts by African writers to participate in what Simon Gikandi has called "the culture of modernity" have consistently raised questions about where the modern is centered and how it travels.

William Carlos Williams and the Meaning of the Local [UPDATE]

updated: 
Monday, September 6, 2010 - 4:16pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

In a short prose piece on Kenneth Burke published in Imaginations, William Carlos Williams writes that "[o]ne has to learn what the meaning of the local is, for universal purposes. The local is the only thing that is universal" (358). As a lifelong resident of Rutherford, New Jersey, Williams is often identified with the Garden State. With NEMLA's 2011 conference situated in New Brunswick, New Jersey, this proposed panel intends to explore the personal, literary, and philosophical meaning of the local for Williams and its implications for his legacy as a modernist poet.

CFP: postcolonialism and economic migrancy

updated: 
Monday, September 6, 2010 - 3:14pm
Postcolonial Studies Association (PSA) Biennial Conference in Birmingham, UK.

The restaurant basements of New York in Kiran Desai's Inheritance of Loss presents a vivid imagery of the travails of economic migrancy and the complex struggles associated with it. As in Desai's text (and countless others) , The immigrant's voice is shaped by multiple, and often contradictory discourses. In many cases, "Imaginary Homelands" for some immigrants is a case of "not being at home" anywhere. The identity of displacement in turn shapes the way he/she views the past and voices the present. How do we understand and represent such voices? For this panel, we seek submissions that focus on issues related to postcolonialism and economic migrancy, exploring the notion of labor as a critical category that shapes postcolonial subjectivity.

Jeanette Winterson: A Critical Exploration 06/17-19/2011

updated: 
Monday, September 6, 2010 - 9:39am
University of Leeds

Contemporary, controversial and complex, Jeanette Winterson's writings remain some of the most studied and significant of the late-twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Characterised by variety and experiment, her fictional oeuvre remains an outstanding literary achievement. Notable for their intricate fusing of symbolism and realism and deliberate mixing of generic forms, Winterson's writings speak in fascinating ways to a vital and diverse range of preoccupations within contemporary British fiction and beyond.
This conference seeks papers on any aspects of Winterson's work.
