Critical F(r)iction? Literature, Criticism and the Space Between in Contemporary

modern world and that's what I'm being in the only way I know how." - Zadie
Smith

Essays are invited for a proposed collection on the theme of critical
f(r)iction, a term which denotes the potential

Since the 1990s, recent Anglophone Caribbean writing has broken the
literary mold set by the text of the 1950s onwards by foregrounding the
trope of sex and sexuality, along with the relational categories of race,
class, and gender to give a fuller understanding of Caribbean reality.
There is now a pressing need for critical, scholarly, examination of this
new dimension of Caribbean literature.

I invite papers that examine the representation of sex and sexuality as
illustrated in the poetry, fiction, and autobiographical work of
contemporary women writers of the Anglophone Caibbean.

Modernism and the Death of Consciousness

During the first part of the twentieth century, the emerging fields of
psychology and neuroscience altered traditional philosophical
conceptions of mind. However, as the mind became increasingly embodied
in the brain and fragmented nervous system, many prominent thinkers
began to debate the existence of a unifying consciousness. This panel
will explore how the "death of consciousness" affects important
Modernist themes. Please e-mail 300 word abstacts to Deric Corlew

  Gloría Anzaldúa uses the term mestizaje to describe the embodiment of simultaneous identities and the inherent contradictions for women writers and theorists in belonging to multiple cultures at the same time. The borders that separate these identities perpetually change, reflecting the continual shift that marks identity politics. How do these borders create a cultural identity that transcends the notion of multiple, split cultures? How do cultural borders affect race, class, gender, nationality and ethnicity?
