Noted Marxist scholar, Kohei Saito in his book, Karl Marx’s Ecosocialism: Capital, Nature and the Unfinished Critique of Political Economy (2018) rightly pointed out that the evolution of society is in close correlation to the trajectory of the progress of technology. Drawing upon the principle of thermodynamics, another notable Marxist scholar, Amy E. Wendling argued in Karl Marx on Technology and Alienation (2009), that purpose of labour had undergone a radical transformation following the progression of technology, allowing for a re-valuation of all material objects. Hence, the use of labour for harnessing natural resources, chiefly for the purpose of sustenance of human life, had been deeply altered by technology.

Willa Cather and the Readerly Imagination

In her own time as in ours, Willa Cather’s books created vibrant and varied communities of readers. Cather’s literary works detail numerous acts of reading, and she herself was an avid reader with an acute awareness of the reading public. The 69th Annual Willa Cather Spring Conference seeks to celebrate and explore both the act of reading Cather and the presence of reading and readers within Cather’s fiction and letters. The conference will be held Thursday, June 6 – Saturday, June 8, 2024, in Red Cloud, Nebraska.

The directors invite papers on a variety of topics related to Cather, readers, and reading, including but not limited to the following areas.

“In a time of destruction, create something”

Maxine Hong Kingston

This year, our theme is “The Resilience of Imagination.” Imagination intrinsically ties into stories and the creative work that creates the world and characters contained within said stories. Imagination does not limit itself just to writers though – anyone who creates or interacts with art relates to imagination. What does imagination mean in a story? How do you use imagination? What does it encompass?

‘Decolonization’ is now a buzzword in academics as well as in contemporary South Asian politics, meaning different things to different people – from decolonizing the mind to literally demolishing colonial monuments: in many cases, the emotion associated with decolonization is grossly misplaced. If decolonization amounts to ethnic cleansing or for that matter, igniting communal animosity through distortion of history, leading to more fractures than harmony in society, that form of aggressive decolonization is certainly not desirable. Therefore, ‘decolonization’ needs to be understood in all its nuances, which are often whitewashed in order to advance divisive political agendas.
