Call for Papers: Comparative Diasporic Poetics in the Literature of
Transnational Indian Writers

We propose to publish a collection of essays on the diasporic implications
and the hybrid cultural consciousness in the writings of the Indian
diaspora. The site of the diasporic cultures may be in the nation itself
or in transnational locations--in the Metropole or in various sites of
migrations, such as the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, on
the one hand, and (Myanmar) Burma, Malaysia, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania,
Uganda, or the Caribbean, on the other. Although the phenomenon of
population dispersal is ancient, it appears to have increased massively in
the twentieth century

Modernist Studies Association 8
Tulsa, Oklahoma: October 19-22, 2006

Proposed Panel: Identity Politics After (Post)Modernity

We wish to propose a panel that encourages thinking about minority
identity and the process of modernism and modernization. In what ways can
we conceive of the role of minority identity in a discourse dominated by a
single voice that seeks to drown out all others? Papers dealing with
modernity and colonialism are of particular interest, especially those
that look at to what extent postmodernity has resolved this "darker side"
of modernity.

UPDATE: Aesthetics and Victorian/Edwardian Detective Fiction (5/21/06; collection)

Paul Fox

In recent years there has been a growing critical interest in the literary detective, and a number of recent studies have examined the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century sleuth from a variety of theoretical perspectives: Foucauldian, feminist, post-colonial and post-structuralist. Cultural historians examine the period and the detective in terms of empire, gender, social authority and scientific developments in criminology. Little is said of the relationship between late Victorian and Edwardian detective fiction in terms of style, the art of detection and the question of contemporary aesthetic theory.
