CFP: Resistance to English in Anglophone Literature (3/15/07; MLA '07)
Division 33 (Literature in English other than British and American)
plans a panel for the Chicago convention (12/27-30/07) on the following
topic: "Resistance to English in Anglophone Literature." Is English a
viable postcolonial language? Where does the Asmara Declaration of 2000
stand today? Can we speak meaningfully of "Englishes," and what might
their existence facilitate: Indian English vs. American English vs.
Nigerian English, etc. How does translation theory relate to questions
of authorial voice, authenticity, opposition to master discourses,
globalization of literary standards, choice of audience(s), etc.
250-word abstracts to John Hawley by March 15.
From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
