Citizenship and American Literature

updated: 
Monday, September 17, 2018 - 4:09pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session seeks papers that explore the concept of citizenship in hemispheric American literature. The scale and severity of the current immigration crisis in the United States presses us to reconsider how the category of citizenship produces exclusions and abuses that arise from our national imaginary. Thus, we seek papers that broaden our understanding of citizenship beyond the spatially-bounded to better grasp the range of categories that bestow and rescind national belonging. Recent work, such as Carrie Hyde’s Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship, reframes citizenship as an imaginative longing that sutures the legal concept of the citizen to the cultural work of fiction.

Dubbing at Translating Bollywood in Europe: A colloquium.

updated: 
Monday, September 17, 2018 - 4:03pm
De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 10, 2018

The ever-growing distribution of Bollywood films worldwide, and in Europe, brings into focus the translational practices of dubbing and subtitling as crucial elements that affect the reception of this cinema abroad, as well as the role they play as cultural filters of one culture to another. In the past few years, the use of Indian accents in Bollywood cinema have caused dissent on the way specific linguistic cultures have been depicted and translated, problematising the use of multilingualism and its nuances in India. Thus, is cinema a universal language?
