The post-socialist reality in East Europe profoundly changed the rural and urban settlements. Abandoned factories, vacant villages, unfinished housing projects, decline and abandonment are some common threads that appear in post-socialist rural and urban landscapes. De-industrialisation and the post-1990s capitalist rules left small towns and villages empty and decayed. In the former socialist countries of Africa, Latin America, and south-east Asia rural and urban decline has also been linked with the history of colonial expansion, the destruction of nature, and racial violence. While some communities have embraced spatial regeneration trends, others remain ruined, marginalised, and declined.

“Human and Non-Human Animals in 19th century English Literature.”

According to John Berger in his famous essay, “Why Look at Animals?” (1977), there was a fundamental shift in the ways in which Europeans imagined and interacted with non-human animals (domesticated and wild) in the 19th century. The nature of this shift, Berger argues, was a symptomatic consequence of the social, cultural, and demographic transformations brought about by industrialization, urbanization, and capitalism.

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters."  Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books.  Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. They are Other. They are Us. This panel will explore monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications.

Talking Heads have proved to be one of the most influential of any of the groups associated with the punk and new
wave scene that flourished in New York in the mid-1970s. They released a number of epoch-defining albums (Talking
Heads 77, Fear of Music, Remain in Light, Little Creatures); they spawned influential and successful offshoots- David
Byrne’s collaboration with Brian Eno on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts; Tom Tom Club (Tina Weymouth’s and Chris
Frantz’s side project); and their forays into other media (music video; the concert film Stop Making Sense; and the
feature film True Stories) were, for the most part, both critically and commercially successful. After the band’s

Borders, Boundaries and Identities

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 - 9:33am
Intersections: A Journal of Literary and Cultural Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 6, 2022

The marking of borders and boundaries aims at structuring and naming spaces – both geographical and symbolic – as distinguishable entities. This naming, however, is subject to the incessant erasure and redrawing of lines of demarcation and redefining of spaces and identities, the demolition and reorganization of power structures, and the repositioning of the centre and the margins. Despite attempts at disciplining territories, spaces and identities, transgressions of boundaries and borders are inevitable. And the passages created by differing boundaries constitute the most contested fields. Nomenclature, therefore, remains a problem without a closure.
