Roopika Risam in her New Digital Worlds (2019) argues that the postcolonial digital pedagogy aims to show “how print culture has played a role in constructing a world that privileges the stories, voices, and values of the Global North and how digital cultures in the twenty-first century reproduce these practices, contributing to the epistemological marginalization of the Global South” (89).

This collection aims to continue the work of diversifying the 19th-century British literary canon. Many authors who were revolutionary and popular during their time are now underrepresented in the current scholarly field. The essays in the collection will touch on underread texts and authors as well as underappreciated characters in more traditionally canonical works. We welcome essays using lenses such as disability studies, trauma theory, critical race theory, queer theory, postcolonial studies, and more.

Chapter proposals can include but are not limited to:

  • Underread 19th-century British authors

  • 19th-century diaries or letters that have been critically ignored

CFP: ACLA Panel: "Unruly Women in Contemporary Pop Culture"

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Recently, we have seen a growing number of unconventional female characters in literature, film, and on TV – characters that do not conform to patriarchal and capitalist constructions of femininity, that defy our expectations and refuse to follow the (written and/or unwritten) rules. In her monograph The Unruly Woman: Gender and the Genres of Laughter (1995), Kathleen Rowe focused on the representation of “unruly women” in comedy. According to Rowe, the romantic comedy genre has “provided one of the few outlets for representations of female unruliness in Hollywood film” (Rowe 19).

Caste-ing Academia: The Global Rise of (Critical) Caste Studies

Monday, September 25, 2023 - 3:41pm

Saturday, September 30, 2023

North American academia in the last few decades has been forced to confront Caste as a crucial analytic in the study of the local and the global through various disciplinary perspectives. With groundbreaking work such as Yashica Dutt’s Coming Out as Dalit (2019), Divya Cherian’s Merchants of Virtue: Hindus, Muslims, and Untouchables in Eighteenth-Century South Asia (2022) and so on, Caste has become, rightly so, an avoidable part of the global-postcolonial-neocolonial world of scholarship. Recent work by scholars like Nico Slate and Isabel Wilkerson seeks to compare and connect modern racial structures in the US and Europe to the ancient system of Caste in India.

Symposium Selfing and Shelving: Zines, Zine Media, and Zintivism

Zines are extremely versatile and shapeshift across various historical and cultural contexts. The term covers a wide range of objects with different aesthetic and material qualities as well as contexts of production and reception: Zines accommodate the collective concerns of fans and activists (zintivism) and the personal voice of the diarist and letter writer. Since the rise of digital media, zines and their aesthetics have become portable: Digitised and digital zines exist alongside blogs, social media, podcasts, and substacks, which seem to exhibit zine-y tendencies, while digital infrastructures have changed the ways that print zines are produced, distributed, and archived.

Trauma and Memory Studies: Responses from the Global South (Online)

Thursday, November 30, 2023

Memory and Trauma Studies have emerged as a key paradigm in the field of humanities, social and cultural studies, especially towards the end of the 20th century. The intersections and interactions between these two fields have been employed by contemporary scholars to study human histories of war, atrocities, genocides, partition, displacement and discrimination. Building upon this enriched understanding of the intricate relationship between memory and trauma, scholars have extended their inquiries to explore the mechanisms through which societies and individuals navigate the aftermath of traumatic experiences.

Labour in the Long Nineteenth Century (Southampton, UK)

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 30, 2023

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 in more recent years by scholarship which has diversified traditional and non-traditional categorisations of ‘labour’. This conference seeks to question the thinking by which we identify forms of labour in the first place: who, both in the nineteenth century and now, is allowed to decide what counts as labour? Which voices of the long nineteenth century emerge if we diversify our definition(s) of labour? And, how can the scholarship of labour – or the labour of scholarship – help us navigate the nature, purpose, and value of labour in a post-Covid era?

What can quantification, statistics, and algorithms contribute to our understanding of literary works, trends, or history? How can engagement with data be productive, contributing to traditional research strategies by adding more options of interpretation and analysis? We welcome proposals for an edited volume on the possibilities – and limitations – of applying computational methodologies to the study of modern Hebrew literature from the Haskalah to contemporary times, all genres, including translation studies.

 

Please send abstracts by December 1, 2023 (500 words, and preliminary bibliography) in which you define your project: corpus, methodology, innovation, context, and connection to traditional literary study.
