The geopolitical space called ‘South Asia’ has resulted in a literature that is the product of various forms of contact i.e. travel, pilgrimage, colonization, trade etc. Social movements and historical changes have triggered transformations globally and it reinvigorated the ongoing dialogue regarding the true interpretation of South Asian literature. Philosophers like Merleau Ponty (phenomenologist), Martin Buber (existentialist) or Bakhtin all helped in reconceptualised understanding of human relations and thereby, in turn leading to a greater understanding of South Asian literature from newer and emerging perspectives.

The Twentieth century saw the rapid development of the city and its impact on the socio-cultural fabric of nations manifested in the social and cultural ways of living. The city came to be represented as an urban wasteland and the loss and moving away from the pastoral was eulogised in many texts. These texts looked into the anonymity of the individual in the milieu of the city where the older closed bonds of the familiar rural community got replaced by the unfamiliar existence. The village was seen as an idyllic space nurturing the humans towards an organic and symbiotic coexistence and ways of living.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 1, 2021

The Science and Technology area of NEPCA encourages proposals for presentations that explore the relation of science and technology (broadly defined) to popular culture and to American culture. We are particularly interested in putting science, technology, culture, and the humanities in conversation with one another. How are science and technology represented in popular culture? How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture? What do we gain, what do we risk by approaching science and technology from the lens of the humanities, the humanities from the lens of science, by putting these disciplines in conversation with each other?

Representación de la mujer en la España contemporánea

Monday, May 31, 2021

Desde tiempos inmemorables la representación cultural de la mujer ha estado sometida a la mirada masculina, que la ha cosificado, sexualizado, cuando no vilificado. A pesar de los grandes avances, al menos formales, para la mujer en España desde los años 80, todavía no se la suele ver en posiciones de poder, en aquellos lugares donde se toman las decisiones sobre, por ejemplo, a quiénes publicar, qué tipos de programas se muestran en la televisión, qué tipo de mujer y de relaciones se visualizan, qué canciones se escuchan en la radio, etc.

Such work also frequently attends, in nuanced ways, to the lived experience and dynamics of intersectionality.
