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?

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 14, 2023

From the ancient text of the Kama Sutra, the first script that studied sexual intercourse as science (Chakraborty and Thakurata), to the 2011 cult novel Fifty Shades of Grey, sex figures in literature in many different ways. That is, if it figures at all. While in the Victorian era “silence became the rule” on the subject of sex (Foucault), Preciado writes that today sex and the discourse surrounding it have silently “turned into governmental agents” of power.

Contemporary Global Feminisms – Solidarity Across Differences

Taking place 13 June 2023, Birkbeck University and online

Deadline for CfP: 24th April 2023, 9:00 AM

Since its initiation in 2016, the CHASE Feminist Network has been in conversation with many of the transitions that took place within academia and the world at large. During this period, the attitudes towards and within feminism have also experienced vast shifts, where intersectionality has permeated the mainstream just as dividing lines have been erected between the feminisms of varying kinds. Yet at its core, there remains the reverberation of solidarity against patriarchal oppression, which is ever-present in our contemporary moment.

The Hospital for the Maintenance and Education of Exposed and Deserted Young Children was established in 1739.  It was the ‘darling project’ of Thomas Coram who saw the need to care for infants when their parents were unable to.  The Hospital underwent great changes between 1739 when its opening was a watershed event in British child welfare and 1954 when it ended its practice of institutional care.  This conference aims to bring together the global community of Foundling Hospital researchers for the first time to discuss all aspects of the charity’s history, and stimulate new avenues of investigation in the institution’s archives.

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed the urgent need for efficient and effective communication and collaboration processes between the five systems science/ education, politics, economy, the media-based and culture-based public as well as the natural environment of societies.

As a consequence, the high infection rate had an impact on communication processes between all systems. Especially during the first wave of the pandemic, the information needed in society was extraordinarily high because many people were afraid and scared.

Thursday, June 1, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

The individual body performatively constitutes its gender, experiences desire for other (individual) bodies, undergoes significant changes, and functions as the battlefield for a range of social and political struggles. However, the collective body in groups provides an equally productive basis for the analysis and interpretation of gendered and sexual processes. The human body is never neutral, and many works of fiction give meaning to a disintegrated, disable, diseased, wounded, damaged, mutilated body through the power of language.

Must We? The Discourse of Student Need

Writing studies, in its aims to meet “student need,” has always been teleological in its orientation. But should we continue to assume that we know what future we are preparing our students for and maintain confidence in what best serves them? This special issue asks for a critical reappraisal of our reliance on those discourses of goals, needs, and assessments and how they have shaped and continue to shape our fields, especially given emerging transnationalism and globalism in teaching and scholarship.
