Postcolonial studies as a way of reclaiming history from the perspective of the colonised continues to uncover the myriad fraught legacies of colonialism. The emergence of newer interdisciplinary areas of inquiry, such as climate change, has further revealed tangled legacies of colonialism that continue to persist. The burgeoning field of postcolonial print culture studies, in turn, has been bringing to the fore a fascinating terrain of production, circulation and consumption of print in colonial contexts that is particularly enriching our knowledge of anticolonial resistance in various ways.  This conference aims to bring together academic work in some of the newer sub-fields of postcolonial inquiry with attention to continuities.

[UPDATED: Deadline Extended] CFP for an Edited Collection on the Contemporary Global Novel

We are seeking proposals for contributions to an edited collection of essays, titled Unruly Fictions: Geographies of Genre in the Contemporary Global Novel, focused on how the contemporary global novel expands the generic boundaries of fiction. This collection returns to a question that is at this point familiar terrain within literary studies: what is a novel? Our goal in this collection is to approach this question through scholarly essays that span a broad geographic scope and rethink the idea of “global” within and beyond established binaries: global norths and souths, easts and wests, colonial centers and peripheries, travelers and travelees.

TRANSFORMATIONS 

 

JOIN CEA IN ATLANTA!

 

The Big Peach. The ATL. The Dogwood City. Atlanta is a city always reimagining itself. The city’s history parallels America's own complicated and continuing story. This spirit of TRANSFORMATION—the theme of CEA 2024—is captured in the city's seal featuring a phoenix rising from the ashes. The image captures Atlanta's resilience as a city in how it emerged from the devastation of the Civil War to become a modern industrial metropolis, the center of the movement for Civil Rights, and what the New York Times describes as “hip-hop’s center of gravity.”

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Re-Reading British and Irish Landscapes in the 21st Century: Nature, Networks, Identities

University of Mannheim
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 20, 2023

International Workshop / University of Mannheim, 14-15 June 2024

This conference takes its cue from the fact that various topical tendencies and events have refuelled interest in landscapes and the countryside in recent years, be it the climate crisis, the crisis of national identity in the context of the Brexit debate or reconsiderations of Britain’s colonial past. It aims at exploring the multi-layered interest in British and Irish landscapes in the 21st century, as writers and researchers alike critically engage with the ideologically charged notion of the countryside by re-reading and reconfiguring popular tropes.

Three Day National Conference from December 13-15,2023 on Food and Culture: Transforming Perspectives and Paradigms

Food, the basic amenity of all living beings, is beginning to be perceived from multiple cultural and ideological perspectives, which leads to the broadening of its theoretical concerns as well as its praxis. With the transforming curriculum modifications put forward by NEP for encouraging cross-cultural inquiries, interdisciplinary research, and multidisciplinary collaborations, cutting-edge research in food studies would lead to more rigorous academic deliberations on both the sociocultural significance of culinary studies and the politics of the everyday. Culinary is the most pertinent and bridging agency that engages various sociocultural spaces.

American Literature Association 2024 (Chicago, May 23 – 26, 2024): “Stevens and the Little Magazine”

The publication, circulation, and reception of little magazines made modernism happen. They set modernist poetry in motion, rattling and humming. The little magazine was a medial form, a technology, an infrastructure, a format, and a context for reading. Organized by the Wallace Stevens Society, this panel welcomes scholars to consider Stevens’s work in little magazines and to consider little magazines as mediators of, or resonators for, Stevens’s work. We seek abstracts that draw Stevensian poetics and criticism into contact with cultural and textual studies of the little magazine.

Breaking the Silence: Minority languages in contemporary music as reclamation, resistance and revitalisation

updated: 
Thursday, October 26, 2023 - 1:27pm
University of Waikato
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2024

We invite extended abstract proposals for chapters that explore the significance of songs sung in marginalised or minority languages within contemporary music genres (from indige-punk, metal, hardcore, hip hop, rap, pop and so on). For so many minority cultures, language signifies survival. Language presence in contemporary music often constitutes a conscious form of language activism, in terms of freedom of expression and/or a deliberate effort to revive language through increasing its presence, value and usage. As Huang (2022) notes, through modern music the perception of minority languages can be shifted “from traditional, inferior, and underprivileged to international, modern, and confident” (p. 44).

Living Enclosures

Enclosure is as much origin-story as it is globally contested condition. Critical accounts
positioning the act of enclosure as integral to the root-systems of global capitalism,
environmental catastrophe and precarity often refer to the historical effort by landowners to do
away with the commons in favor of legally and politically recognized enclosures. Transforming
sustainable agricultural practices into sites of energy-production primed for capital development,
the early-modern enclosure movement gave rise to what Robert P. Marzec characterizes as “a
model of the human that took as its direct enemy an environment thought to be threatening

The realm of science fiction serves as a captivating tapestry, weaving together speculative narratives that extend beyond the bounds of conventional reality. Within this expansive genre, three thematic strands emerge as critical foci: Posthumanism, Alternate Realities, and Cyberculture. This exploration aims to unravel the nuanced layers embedded within these themes, offering a critical lens through which to examine the implications for contemporary society, ethical considerations, and the trajectory of human existence.
