The University Press of Kansas has expressed interest in publishing a book of essays about representations of the multiverse in popular culture.  The theory of the multiverse – the premise that our known universe if merely one iteration of an infinite number of alternate universes – has recently emerged from scientific obscurity to become a common trope of popular fiction.  Everything Everywhere All at Once won 2022’s Academy Award for Best Picture, multiversal timelines are a central feature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and representations of parallel realities in television shows such as SlidersFringeDr.

‘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.

University of Oxford
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 8, 2024

From the ghostly sight of Julian of Norwich and Hamlet's 'mind's eye' to the rapturous idyll of Coleridge's Xanadu and the apocalyptic prophecies of Yeats's 'The Second Coming'-vision, its constraints, and revelatory possibilities have served as a creative wellspring for writers across time. Indeed, amongst the oldest and most formative motifs across literature is the visionary author, whose prophetic (in) sight transports us beyond the mundane. Meanwhile, simply adding the prefix 're' reminds us of another central yet undersung facet of authorship: revision. What drives textual (re)visions, and how do these in turn shape reception? We seek to explore literary

Issue 7: Labour in the Long Nineteenth Century

The study of labour in the long nineteenth century has enjoyed a rich critical history, guided by the twentieth century’s New Left focus on class formation and experience, and extended by recent scholarship which has diversified traditional and non-traditional categorisations of ‘labour’. Scholars working within the postcolonial and ecocritical ‘turn’ have called for a re-imagining of the structures of labour, resource consumption, and value production, looking to the nineteenth century for its complexly-interwoven transfers of labour value across domestic and imperial boundaries.

From Ovid to Covid: Investigating the Global Environmental Issues in Art, Culture and Literature

Thursday, February 8, 2024 - 2:51pm
Editors: Dr. PARTHA SARATHI MANDAL and Mr. DAYAL CHAKRABORTTY
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 29, 2024

Concept Note: In 1989, in WLA conference when Glotfelty first used the term ‘ecocriticism ’ and subsequently edited The Ecocriticism Reader with Harold Fromm, the global literary circle had had a new way of discourse. The narrative of the study of the relationship between art/culture/literature and the physical environment had been shifted from the human centric romantic approach to nature to the narrative of the biocentric approach to nature. It started to interrogate the role of human imagination in literature as well. This shift in approach fathered some naturecentric ecological narratives like Deep Ecology.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

Masks have been used throughout history for many different purposes. Some use literal masks for entertainment and performance; some use them for cunning and disguise; others use figurative masks to hide their true identities from those around them. As we consider trends—and shifts in those trends—in literature, theory, criticism, and academia, we must analyze the utility of masks to determine why people have needed them and still need them.

 

IUP’s English Graduate Organization is proud to announce the 2024 EGO Spring Conference with the theme: Masks and Masking. For this conference, we will be utilizing the hybrid format (both in-person and via Zoom) to accommodate everyone and encourage those from outside of IUP to join us as well.
