International Symposium On Notions of Romani Origin

updated: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018 - 9:58am
Centre for Advanced Study, Sofia
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

The claim in support of the Romani community’s Indian origin -- what the Orientalists first propounded is now reinforced by Genetics -- was, during the 18-19th centuries, premised upon the homophony between Romani and Indian languages. This was in line with notions of ‘border thinking’ so pervasive within the Orientalist discourse, and has since then provoked classist vis-à-vis confrontations and ideological practices of territorializing ‘differential space’ (Lefebvre, 1992). Taking off from here, the Centre for Advanced Study, Sofia is organizing an international symposium during 25-26 January 2019, which seeks to reflect on:

American cinema has long been preoccupied with depictions of the foreigner, and mainstream films typically stage scenarios where the resolution to eject or assimilate the foreigner is celebrated as a moment of solidarity for Americans. Our panel will explore representations of the foreigner in contemporary American cinema, and we invite contributions that pay specific attention to films that address:

- Images of the foreigner in the immediate aftermath of 9/11
- Foreign terrorists/terrorism during the War in Afghanistan
- American responses to refugee crises around the globe
- The impact of the 2016 election and Donald Trump's presidency

Special issue of scrutiny2: "Shining girls, glitterboys, and mavericks: engaged queerness in the fiction of Lauren Beukes"

With the publication of Queer Africa 2 (2017), the second Gerald Kraak anthology (2018) and She called me Woman: Nigeria’s queer women speak (2018), queer women’s writing from African contexts are coming to the fore. This, along with the rising popularity of online collectives such as holaafrica.org, necessitates a reflection on the contemporary state of queer literature and theory produced in the Southern Africa context.
