There are numerous descriptions of affect within literary criticism, including those focused on the human psyche, reader or author contexts, time-spaces and places, non-human vibrance, and the notion that affect involves yet exceeds us. Since this year's PAMLA theme is "Shifting Perspectives," a panel with more than one understanding of affect is fitting. Whether you study Sara Ahmed, Brian Massumi, Lauren Berlant, Sianne Ngai, Gillies Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Jenny Sharpe, Claire Colebrook, Eve Sedgwick, Rei Terada, Hsuan L. Hsu, or any of the growing number of theorists which address affect in their work, this panel is for you!

Feminism has become the most controversial, most discussed and most contested subject in India’s current academic field. North East Indian feminism generally depended on Western feminism as well as Indian feminism frameworks. These two frameworks are diversely intricate from North-East India in term of race, class, caste, culture and religion, etc. Moreover, it is important to note that most Indian mainstream feminists are brought up in a specific cultural setting i.e. class, caste, religion etc. from various parts of India. ‘Indian feminist thought’ is a term that they coined through their own discourse.

We're reloading our call for short articles on color!
A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?
Call for Proposals:
Many universities, departments, programs and/or faculty have developed their own policies about the use of AI in the classroom. Some advocate for banishing it completely, while others advocate for embracing it completely. Still others are not quite sure what it can do and whether they should embrace it or not. If banishing AI from the writing classroom, how is that monitored? If embracing AI in the writing classroom – what does that look like? Your research on this topic is valuable to all of us.
