CFP: Praxis in Native American Performance (3/6/06; collection)

Pamela Grieman

In an essay subtitled "Native American Voices and Postcolonial Theory," Louis Owens criticizes postcolonial theorists
who claim to represent a wide panoply of minority voices yet fail to recognize the existence of a resistance literature
arising from "indigenous, colonized inhabitants of the Americas." Owens asks rhetorically what the indigenous Native
American must do "to be allowed a voice like Shakespeare's cursing Caliban" without resorting to mimicking the
language of the "colonial center" that determines legitimate discourse (in Gretchen Bataille, ed., NATIVE AMERICAN
REPRESENTATIONS, 13, 22). Elizabeth Cook-Lynn has argued for the development of a nationalistic, Third World

CFP: Postmodern Survivors(4/1/06; SAMLA, 11/4/06-11/6/06)

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2006 - 6:16pm
Rebecca Duncan

Survivor paradigms through which literatures of trauma are read often presume a stable self that can be recovered. How and what does a postmodern subject survive, and is recovery possible or desired? How is selfhood in dialogue with culture in moments of crisis? The devastation in our Gulf Coast invites us to consider existing theories of the survivor and to contemplate new approaches that acknowledge elements of postmodern culture.

Theoretical essays and readings of specific texts/events/experiences are welcome for this SAMLA special session. Memoirs and autobiography must be in dialogue with critical discourse.
