R. K. Narayan Birth-Centenary Conference

A birth-centenary conference on R. K. Narayan will be held from 10 to 12
October 2006 at Mysore. The conference is organized by the Indian
Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (IACLALS) and
the Sahitya Akademi (the National Academy of Letters), New Delhi.

Of all the Indian novelists in English, R. K. Narayan remains one of the
most highly regarded, perhaps the most widely popular, and even the most
"typically Indian". On the occasion of his birth-centenary, we propose to
bring together a group of scholars and admirers of Narayan to re-read and
revaluate his life, works, context and legacy.

Panel: Negotiating Homeplace in the Nineteenth Century

38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1-4, 2007
Baltimore, Maryland

During the English and American industrial eras (1840-1910), homelessness was
more than a lack of home ownership. It often implied a lack of opportunity, a
lack of identity, a lack of acceptance. During this era, how did individuals
negotiate their space (or lack thereof)? How did their homes – or lack
thereof – aid or hinder their own development and position in society? What
spaces did they transform, and in what ways did they manage to maintain,
create, or reconstitute their homes?
