From antiquity, the concept of ἐνέργεια (energeia) as potentiality has guided and continues to drive our idea of form and change. Transformation allows us to understand the movement of form and thought, and likewise insists on new perspectives and epistemologies. We consider transformation as a concept that can encapsulate distinction, change, divergent ways of thinking and being. The question of transformation, then, requires us to reexamine the utility and function of form.

The rapidly shifting landscape of capitalism in our current moment requires that we resituate our analyses of texts and sites of cultural production with the intent to question categories of class and overarching capitalist structures. Echoing theorists such as Jonathan Beller whose work attends to novel developments in capitalist economic formation, this seminar seeks to examine the place of texts within a constantly changing capitalist landscape. With this in mind, this seminar responds to the ways in which accumulation, commodification, distribution, and markets become specialized economies, such as the information economy, attention economy, and surveillance capitalism, to name a few.

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?

The growing number of singles globally and increased attention that is paid to them within academia, public domain and popular culture has reignited many debates with regard to theory, methodology and practice thereby highlighting multiple contestations and lacunae within structural frameworks that require interrogation from new perspectives and methodologies. In the light of the above, we can ask what does it mean to be non-partnered when viewed from a normative lens that prioritizes cishet families and compulsory coupledom?
