Call For Papers – ReFocus: The Films of David Mamet

We are seeking abstracts of 250-500 words for essays to be included in a book-length anthology on David Mamet to appear in late 2022. We have received a number of strong proposals already, but looking for a few more to add to the volume’s lineup. The intended scope of the work is to analyze Mamet’s unique position as an artist of note in both the theatre and the cinema, as well as his very specific ideas about dramatic structure, performance style, and economical visual storytelling. It will argue, for the first time, that Mamet’s film work is an essential, but underappreciated dimension of his artistic career.

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Not so long ago, the links between Romanticism and vexed issues such as class, gender, or race, were barely explored within Romantic studies, despite that some Romantics embraced very eagerly what today sound like very unacceptable ideas such as the division of humankind into two primary racial groups:  the “culturally superior and beautiful Europeans” on the one hand, and the “Mongols”, namely “the ugly and inferior” Asians, Africans and Americans on the other.[1]

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.
