Call for Academic and Creative Proposals:

“Conflict is not another word for crisis or for war or for competition. Conflict is a condition of intellectual life, and, I believe, its pleasure. Firing up the mind to engage itself is precisely what the mind is for—it has no other purpose. Just as the body is always struggling to repair itself from its own abuse, to stay alive, so is the mind craving knowledge. When it is not busy trying to know, it is in disrepair.”

- Toni Morrison, “Grendel and His Mother”

deadline for submissions:

Abstract : 

   Through the stories of Chinese-American immigrant women and their daughters, Amy Tan's "The Joy Luck Club" explores the issue of assimilation and its impact on ethnic identity. This essay explores the characters' struggles to maintain their Chinese cultural identity while assimilating into American society, focusing on important issues such as language, intergenerational relationships, customs, and cultural memory. The story depicts integration as a difficult, intensely personal process in which people must strike a balance between preserving their Chinese ancestry and absorption into American society. 

Book Chapter on Deconstructing the Gender-Based Violence in South Asian Literature and Popular Culture

Gender-based violence is a worldwide issue with an extended past that is predominantly an outcome of social norms and power disparities. In countries as different as Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe, studies find that violence is frequently viewed as physical chastisement—the husband’s right to ‘correct’ an erring wife (Heise 1999). Unfortunately, it is one of many societal concerns that literature has long addressed. According to the analysis of a report by CARE and International Rescue, gender-based violence has arisen amid the pandemic and quarantines (Haneef and Kalyanpur 2020).
