Caste-based discrimination (or Racial discrimination) is ever-present in most parts of the world today. Within India, caste has been a significant movement driven by binaries such as pure vs impure, Aryans vs Dravidians, and high vs low castes, including socio-economic class structure. This edited volume will discuss Dr B. R. Ambedkar’s (April 14 1891 - December 6 1956) autobiography known as Waiting for Visa from multiple perspectives.  The aim is to explore contemporary India and her social, political, educational, and religion to changing socio-economic-political-religious conditions keeping the Waiting for Visa at the centre.

The world as we know it is undergoing dynamic transformation. Many gains have been made in recent decades towards loosening the grip of some of the belief systems that have enabled many systemic inequalities in the modern world. The ideological underpinnings of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy and coloniality, for example, have been rigorously challenged and are being steadily eroded, leading to changes in legal frameworks, social practices and the norms of acceptable everyday behaviour. The highly visible and vocal Black Lives Matter movement, which regained international momentum following the murder of George Floyd, has become a widely recognized recent manifestation of this refusal to abide the injustices and indignities of the past.

Welcoming Students: The Syllabus as Hospitable Practice

Thursday, September 30, 2021

I know many of us hope that we create welcoming, hospitable environments for our students. That we, in some small way, encourage a space for community building and critical citizenship. Yet, we begin our semesters with the “reading” of an often woefully inhospitable and prescriptive document written in vaguely performative “legalese”—THE SYLLABUS. The syllabus is more than a mere delineation of our classes’ rules, regulations, policies, and procedures—though, these elements of the syllabus are important, to be sure. The syllabus is our students’ first experience of us as educators. This document represents us as educators nearly as much as the texts we chose to assign, the assessment portfolios we design, and the selves we share with our students.

The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.

 

For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

As we have seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, the human response to trauma and tragedy takes a variety of forms: searching for and creating community, memorializing, lashing out, satirizing, and private mourning among them. In the aftermath of trauma and tragedy—be it a natural disaster, pandemic, revolt, or outbreak of violence--the acts of healing and rebuilding can take substantial time and require focused energy. Those living in the medieval past were, of course, no strangers to pandemics, natural disasters, and political and religious upheavals. How did they (and we) attempt to heal and rebuild after such events?

Call for Papers for NeMLA 2022 panel "Literary Form, Spirituality, and Empire in the Global 20th Century"

Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel seeks to explore the interrelations between spirituality, global (anti)imperial politics, and literary form and practice in the twentieth century. There has been a commonly held scholarly contention that modern literature emerged out of a crisis of faith, if not an absolute death of God. Was such a crisis of faith related to global politics in the fin de siècle and later? If yes, how? How is secularist thought related to notions and imaginaries of the globe and of the world? Where did the other-worldly and the inner-worldly meet? How are the transcendental other and the imperial other interrelated in twentieth-century world literatures?

CALL FOR PAPERS: Essays on Police and Policing in 21st Century Film and Television

The Black Lives Matter movement, the trial and conviction of Derek Chauvin,  calls to defund the police, the prominence in the media of killer police such as Joseph James DeAngelo are recent manifestations of intense and even unprecedented levels of media attention on policing at interlocking points of race, inequality, social justice and political agendas.  Equally, exciting cross-disciplinary engagement between fields of justice studies, criminology, cultural studies and popular culture are increasingly opening up.

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.
