Re-positioning India and Australia in the Emergent Geo-Politics: Identities, Entanglements, Cultural Diplomacy
(3-4 March, 2023)
In the wake of rising neoliberal extractive processes, contemporary society has reached a crisis pointwhere the democratic ethos is becoming blurred, even as, following the devastation of the Covid-19 pandemic, networks of social care and healthcare have been and continue to be debilitated. Atthe same time, the habitability ofthe planet and sustainability ofits environment are increasingly associated with forms of privilege or acts of exceptionalism. The roots of many of these dilemmas are at least in part vested in the legacy of Empire and Imperialism. The conditions of life in present times are being determined by the rhetoric of the state-capitalist nexus.
We are soliciting chapter proposals for an edited collection on Fairytale in East Asian Fashion. Stories of yokai (Japan), yogoe (Korea), or yaoguai (China), such as “The Crane Wife” and “The Robe of Feathers,” manifest themselves everywhere in East Asian popular culture these days—from manga, anime / donghua / webtoons, and Pokémon, to fashion. One sees this phenomenon through brands such as Maison Kitsune, yokai-themed collections, street style, cosplay, and of course, traditional ethnic dress. Chapters may cover any fairytale or any fantastical creature that features strongly in Asian fairytale—baku, dokkaebi, kappa, kitsune / huli jing / gumiho, qilin, yuki onna, etc etc.

This proposed volume of interdisciplinary essays reexamines the Federal Writers’ Project (FWP) as a labor project. We are working with a publisher to feature this book, Working through the Federal Writers’ Project: Labor, Place, Archive, and Representation, as part of a potential series on the FWP, on the burgeoning field of FWP studies, and on how FWP studies fits in the larger framework of labor studies. Labor, in this sense, is not a narrow category. It encompasses trade unions, working conditions, labor power, political economy, and the everyday reality of working lives.
Both Melville and Conrad appeal to the concept of life allied with their artistic activities. Moby Dick is pervaded by appeals to the appeal to life, as in the description of a whale skeleton become a chapel: "Life folded Death; Death trellised Life; the grim god wived with youthful Life, and begat him curly-headed glories." Conrad, too describes the action of art in fruitful tension with the kinetics of life, as when in his 1897 preface, he connects art with seizing a fragment "from the remorseless rush of time, a passing phase of life." But how exactly do these writers understand and see their relation to "life" -- vegetative, human, physical, spiritual, ethical?

This MLA panel invites critical and ethical interrogations that underpin the urgency to look beyond the single-issue strategies of reading and creating South Asia in critical discourse. Incidentally, the scholarly trajectory of issues on South Asia has flattened the diversity of the geopolitically, culturally rich discursive space and its experiences to increasingly refer to India-centric discussions.

Phenomenology is a tradition of thinking that acknowledges the already-givenness of our bodies, our relationships to others, and the ecosystems in which we live. Since the founding of the field in the early twentieth century, phenomenologists have taken an interest in the ways that humans engage the world that precedes us, but it was only in the last twenty years that scholars recognized the potential phenomenology could have for environmental ethics and the ongoing multi-disciplinary rethinking of our human relationship to the more-than-human world.
Seeking to illuminate an often marginalized space, this Clues theme issue will focus on female detectives who are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color); span eras, genres, and geographical locations; and appear in texts, TV programs, films, and other media. Of particular interest are intersections among race, indigeneity, gender, age, class, or sexuality in these works, as well as projects that center BIPOC authorship and scholarship.
Some Suggested Topics:
Wayne C. Booth, in The Rhetoric of Fiction (1961), coined the term unreliable narrator to discuss the “artificial authority” that we as readers assign the narrator that is telling us a story (4). The question, however, comes when the narrator withholds information, manipulates information, or outright disguises or hides the information to fulfill a particular purpose. Perhaps the narrator wishes their reader to believe a particular idea, or they do not want the reader to know something to maintain the image they are creating through their narration. Literature has always played with the concept of narration. From Cervantes to Poe to George R.R. Martin, readers experience narrators that are confused, obscured, illusive, and more.
The year between December 29th 2022 and December 29th 2023 would have been the hundredth of William Gaddis’ life. Between 1955, when he published The Recognitions, and 1998, when he died shortly after completing Agapē Agape, Gaddis was notorious for a disproportion between reputation and readership. Being reflexively labelled “difficult,” with his own novels’ wry figurations of characters writing “for a very small audience,” and with a tendency to be categorized (though not always actually read) alongside the increasingly unfashionable “high postmodernists”… all this might have made it hard to envisage his work surviving into the 2000s.

ABOUT THE JOURNAL
Please find below a call for contributions for issue 19.1 of Textes et Contextes, an online jounal published by the University of Burgundy). The papers we are calling for will be published along with the proceedings of the two-day symposium, entitled “Music and Memory in Anglophone Literature” that was held in Dijon on September 19-20, 2019.
In times of crisis—war, pandemic, severe disruptions of supply chains, climate apocalypse, systemic erasure of reproductive autonomy—there might seem to be no meaningful distinction between the extraordinary and the ordinary. Yet after the cultural emphasis on catastrophe in the last few years, a return to the ordinary is overdue. What role can critical thought on ordinary language, affect, and aesthetics now play in interrogating the evolving concept of ordinariness, imagining alternative ordinaries, and expanding our geographies and objects of study? Additionally, what are the limits of critical theory for understanding and communicating about ordinary experience?
Diane di Prima dedicates her “Revolutionary Letters” to several important characters in her life, among whom stands out her grandfather. She states infact that: “The revolutionary letters are dedicated to (…) my grandfather, Domenico Mallozzi (…) who read me Dante at the age of four”. Several international authors of Italian descent of the late modern and contemporary period claimed the importance of Dante’s influence on the artistic development of their works as well as their identity.We are interested in exploring the influence of Dante on those writers and poets, especially women, who were born and raised abroad, and shared a common Italian heritage in the style and contents of their literary works.
The majority of research on 19th-century literary representations of sexual violence variously restricts the field by 1) explicitly or implicitly treating rape as an exceptional crime; 2) limiting analyses to what Erin Spampinato has termed “adjudicative reading,” or legalistic approaches that evaluate rape stories as if they were real-life court cases; and 3) attending only to narratives about cisgender men’s violations of white cisgender women, especially within the middle-class home, to the exclusion of nonheterosexual, queer, and colonial contexts.

The Graduate Student Representative for the Modernist Studies Association seeks paper proposals from graduate students and emerging scholars on the topic of “precarious modernisms” for a guaranteed MSA 2023 panel. In a rapidly shifting climate of academic precarity, what can modernism’s own precarities offer in the way of addressing our contemporary crises of the humanities? Panelists might consider, but are certainly not limited to:
