deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2023

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.

ʻAn encounter is perhaps the same thing as a becoming [...] You encounter people [...] movements, ideas, events, entities [...] It designates an effect, a zigzag, something which passes or happens between two as though under a potential difference [...] a single becoming which is not common to the two [...] but which is between the two, which has its own direction, a bloc of becoming, an a-parallel evolution.ʼ

PAMLA 2023 Panel: Changing perspectives on migration through literature in translation

Migration has become a global phenomenon that indicates complexity and diversity. The mobility of people has also influenced how texts are migrated through translation and how it could influence cultural production. Translation, which facilitates “communication, understanding, and action between persons or groups who differ in language and culture” (Bassnett 5), plays a vital role in the migration diaspora. Texts like people, want to seek new opportunities, they search for a new life in a new place and time, as Moira Inghilleri points out in her book entitled Translation and Migration published in 2017, migration is a “continuous becoming”, it “necessitates movement” (1 & 3).

“Ah! How cheerfully we consign ourselves to perdition!” exclaims Ishmael in Melville’s Moby-Dick, lamenting the “universal thump” of work that we tolerate only for the promise of “being paid.” Ishmael makes it clear that work—and its compensation—is full of paradox and contradiction, an ambivalent source of enjoyment and suffering incompletely rationalized by a financial transaction.

Monday, May 22, 2023

Modern life has become defined in many ways by our digital experiences, and it is in this technological environment that a retreat to an idealized version of the past has been increasingly realized and depicted through social media. The distinctive aesthetics of cottagecore, dark and light academia, and vintage movements represent creative cross sections through which individuals blend pop culture, literature, fantasy, art, and lifestyle elements in an often fantastical, romanticized, or idealized version of the past—one inherently informed by and expressed through a modern, digital present.

Third-ness in Gender: Examining the contemporary making of Third-Gender category in local/vernacular contexts

updated: 
Friday, April 7, 2023 - 7:42am
19th IUAES-WAU World Anthropology Congress 2023
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2023

Short Abstract:

The multiplicity of gender has been a feature of many cultures throughout history, but its meaning and application have varied widely. The panel examines the coloniality/neo-coloniality, and the charges thereof, of the "third-gender" category by tracing its development across a variety of local contexts and times. We invite papers that examine how local formulations of gender intersect with, transform, and assimilate third-ness as an intelligible form of gender.

Call for book chapters in an edited volume: Human Rights and IndianLiterary Communities

This collection undertakes various explorations about the role of literary (and related cultural) communities in the acknowledgement and understanding of human rights bearing subjects. Can literary texts highlight and empathise with those on the social margins as legal subjects possessing rights? Do texts also recognise and challenge the contours of human rights? Can literary communities help imagine and reimagine the outlines of those deemed human and therefore capable of being human rights bearing citizens?
