Discourse of Dispossessions

Humanities Circle, a peer reviewed biannual interdisciplinary journal of Central University of Kerala, India, invites unpublished original research papers, project reports, critical commentaries, photo essays, professional reviews, and English translations of historical/literary texts related to the theme, Discourse of Dispossessions, preferably with an interdisciplinary perspective, for its June 2013 (pending) issue.

A Brief Theme Note:
Hegemonic dispensations always resort to grab the rights of deprived sections often under the camouflages of development, maintenance of law and order, national security, religious sanctity, cultural homogenisation, protection of tradition, morality, industrialisation, and so on. The socio-cultural-economic trajectory of such dispossessions has to be problematised along with individual/communal attempts of resistance to the agents of dispossessions. The forthcoming, June 2014 (pending) issue of Humanities Circle initiates a debate on this topic and invites submissions from scholars/activists on various manifestations of contemporary dispossessions and resistances, cutting across national, religious, ideological, racial, gender, class, caste and disciplinary boundaries.

Submissions in English, on topics of contemporary relevance, strictly in APA/MLA style sheet, should be related to, but not be limited to, the following areas:
