Being Human in the (post)colonial: Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand

updated: 
Saturday, March 9, 2019 - 10:59pm
Modern Language Association - Affiliated Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 20, 2019

NEW DEADLINE:  3/20/19

The situation of colonized and settled lands poses pointed questions about “being human,” starting from who gets to decide who is human, and continuing through questions of what qualifies as humane, humanitarian, human being or being human; and also the opposite: whose voice can cry out against the inhumane, dispute what is considered humanitarian, and offer alternative perspectives on what it means to “be human.”

The American Association of Australasian Literary Studies welcomes 250-word abstracts for papers that rigorously engage with these questions through art, culture, media, and literature (generously considered).

            This call is for a proposed collaborative session between the Southeast Asia/Southeast Asia Diasporic Forum of the Modern Language Association (MLA) and the American Association for Australasian Literary Studies (AAALS) at the January 2020 MLA conference in Seattle. Given the geographical proximity and intertwined histories of several Southeast Asian countries and Australia, we envision a session that explores existing and emerging literary and cultural connections between them across a range of writing, media, and languages.
