Reminder: British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference

updated:

British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2022

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

In the 32 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.

Panel proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

What are the possibilities—and limitations—of investigating commonalities between the plant and the human for discovering new forms of trans, nonbinary, and genderfluid sexualities? How might the study of vegetal forms of agency trouble the very notion of sexual subjectivity as something that originates inside an individual, rather than its environment? Given the role of botany as both a sexual and colonial science, how do postcolonial authors create new rhetorical relations to plant life to express not only queer sexual identities, but the specificities of postcolonial identity more broadly?

Call For Submissions – Creative Collection - Fears and Phobias – Sunderland Creative Press (University of Sunderland)

 

Tip-tap on your window, a nightmare comes to taunt you. It starts slowly, softly, building intensity through the dead of night. A thunderbolt of fright strikes through you; you tremble under the covers alone in the dark with creatures of the night, the perpetrators of your restless, anxiety-ridden slumber. Are you brave enough to explore fear a little closer? If you are, then we want to hear about which monsters lurk in your closet, and even the ones that hide under your bed and inside your head.
