Call for Submissions for Issue 2!

We are now seeking submissions for Issue 2.

The theme is: The Slant, as in …

 

“ Tell all the truth but tell it slant —”

 

Poems that explore the associations and connections of a unique mind. The poet’s eye. A perspective that only the individual could conjure. Worlds, experiences, thoughts, and events cast in a new and distinct light. Poems that focus on the strength of voice and personality. Poems that tinker with language, imagery, and unfamiliarity. We want a peek behind the curtain, to see how the poet sees.

Weird James

Sharon Cameron’s Thinking in Henry James pointed up the weirdness of how consciousness works in his novels. She cites this example from The Portrait of a Lady, in which the subject of Isabel Archer’s reverie suddenly appears: “The effect was strange, for Madame Merle was already so present to her vision that her appearance in the flesh was like suddenly, and rather awfully, seeing a painted picture move.” In Mark Fisher’s account, “the weird is constituted by a presence – the presence of that which does not belong. In some cases [...] the weird is marked by an exorbitant presence, a teeming which exceeds our capacity to represent it.”

“We all know that the word ‘method’ is eventually derived from the Greek ‘methodos’ which again is derived from ‘meta’ meaning ‘after’ and ‘hodos’ meaning ‘way’. If method is moving after a way, then it must have been arrived at after moving wayward for some time.”-Amiya Dev, “Comparative Literature from Below”, JJCL 29

In Literature and Evil, Bataille argues for a close connection between literature and "Evil" as a sovereign and productive value, which is defined against an oppressive use of reason that "flattens" all knowledge into a reductive uniformity. Bataille finds in Blake's A Marriage of Heaven and Hell "agitations", "poetic violence" and "lacerations" that occur in Blake’s drive towards human totality and death. At the same time, Bataille observes that this violence and Evil also "raise us to glory" in Blake's attribution to Evil of "the wisdom of Hell that heralds

This is a second call for chapter manuscripts for the edited volume called “Human Rights and Indian Literary Communities”. 

 While most submissions are in, there is scope for more chapters ONLY in the areas given below.

 This collection undertakes various explorations about the role of literary (and related cultural) communities in the acknowledgement and understanding of human rights bearing subjects. Can literary texts highlight and empathise with those on the social margins as legal subjects possessing rights? Do texts also recognise and challenge the contours of human rights? Can literary communities help imagine and reimagine the outlines of those deemed human and therefore capable of being human rights bearing citizens?

During a 1969 conversation with Simon Karlinsky, Vladimir Nabokov stated that to write "about Pushkin and also about me" one had to know French literature. Hosted by the French Studies Department of Cornell University, this conference aims to look at Nabokov through a transnational and transcultural lens. Cornell University is a particularly fitting location for such a conference given that Nabokov lectured there not only on Flaubert and Proust, but also on Austen, Kafka, Dickens, Stevenson, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Gogol, and others.
