In the U.S., immigrants of Asian origin have historically fallen victim to both extreme violent legal measures and racist stereotype labels—such as the infamous “Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882” and/or other major laws against the naturalization of Asians voted in 1924 and 1934, as well as the notorious use of Orientalist terms such as “inferior race,” “yellow peril,” “perpetual foreigner,” and “model minority,” etc—all of which either aim to “unsee” or to “wrongfully see” Asian presence in the United States of America. Yet, even now two decades into the 21st century, this issue is clearly still ongoing, as the title of scholar Sharon S.

Food fests, feasts, and gatherings address the role of food in events, gatherings, celebrations, and ceremonies. Exploring how people incorporate ideas about food into festival culture, including history, heritage, tradition, creativity, and social and political factors. 

In addition, it examines festivals in which food is not the main focus, yet contributes significantly to the atmosphere, memory, and tradition. It also looks at people's fascination with taste. In addition to examining these notions, we will also examine trends in the consumption and production of food.

Starting from assuming nationalist trends in determining the horizons of Indian literature rooted to ancient myths, legends or epics and creating a cultural heritage against the superiority of the colonialist culture, various theories of determining the “Indianness” of the Indian literature and culture have been invoked.

Who/What Counts

“What Matters” is an invitation to rethink the weight of habits, established structures and validated categories. Arguing that someone/something counts goes against economic/budgetary/financial accounting, which is typically the work of a dominant power that keeps precise accounts, compiling or capitalising, trying to contain or control. What matters is an invitation to give an account of what does not seem to count, what is unthought of or invisible (Fricker 2007, Le Blanc 2009).

DEADLINE EXTENDED! 121st Annual PAMLA Conference Romanticism Session

This year's theme is “Translation in Action.” While most scholarship about translation deals with the interlingual, we welcome scholarship on the other areas discussed by Roman Jakobson such as intralingual and intersemiotic translation. We plan on celebrating the work of a wide range of scholars and translators such as Michael Cronin, Moira Inghilleri, and many others. We seek proposals dealing with translation as a diverse set of practices, a dynamic field of study, and a set of complex networks that affect our lives. Once again, we are open to a variety of interests, but for this year, we are especially interested in proposals on the theme of “Translation in Action.”

The Nuclear Age, Redux: Forms and Modes of Environmental Change

The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in the nuclear – as both material reality and cultural phenomenon. On the one hand, the war in Ukraine has evoked memories of the Chernobyl (1986) and Fukushima (2011) disasters besides displaying the extent of globally dispersed nuclear weapon proliferation since the end of the Cold War. On the other hand, politicians and economists are debating nuclear technology as a sustainable alternative to carbon-intense and fossil-based forms of energy. At the same time, popular texts such as the Oscar-winning movie Oppenheimer (2023) indicate a renewed fascination with nuclear capabilities and post-apocalyptic scenarios. Have we entered a new nuclear age, or have we never truly been post-nuclear?

Teaching English in the Two-Year College and College EnglishSymposium“Equity and Material Conditions in Access-Intensive College English Programs”I feel like what we do and who we are is overlooked.

—Jason C. Evans, 2023 TYCA Conference Chair's Address

The perception that the work occurring in two-year colleges and reports of it in TETYC are relevant only to those spaces means that the new knowledge the journal offers can be overlooked, even when it clearly contributes to a larger disciplinary conversation.
