Decolonization and globalization have made us conscious of the fact that not only is literature no longer national and autonomous, but it never was. Indeed one can only understand any national literature by comparing it with others…or by comparing it with a non-national or a transnational literature. For these reasons the field of comparative literature is more urgent than it ever was.

This seminar seeks to examine diasporic literature in a comparative context. Taking as our literary frame Southeast Asian literature in the diaspora, we invite proposals that address the diaspora as the “dispersion” into many and multiple places. Whereas U.S. and French mainstream cultural productions have relegated the past to the Others (Arjun Appadurai, Modernity at Large 1996: 31), Southeast Asian diasporic cultural productions often work creatively against the dominant cultures in which they operate. Southeast Asian diasporic formations, while multiple in their origins, can be deterritorialized sites of robust critical thought about the legacy of the devastating Asian Pacific theater of the global Cold War.

Urban Gothic is a subgenre of Gothic fiction, Gothic crime fiction, and television whose narratives spring from discourse on industrial and post-industrial urban society. Often dystopic, it was pioneered in the mid-19th century in Britain and the United States and developed in serialisations such as R. L. Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886); into novels such as Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). Much has been written on 19th century Anglo-centred Urban Gothic fiction and vampiristic, monstrous Urban Gothic, but less has been written on the 21st century reimagining and re-serialisation of the Urban Gothic in mechanised, altered, disabled, and dystopic states of being.

Racial passing has been a common theme in literature, especially in texts dealing with escaping to freedom during the antebellum period.  The Nadir period also witnessed a spike in racial passing and colorism themes as racial tensions heightened anti-black violence throughout the United States. This panel seeks papers that examine texts dealing with racial passing and colorism.  Questions for consideration might include:

The OGOM Project is known for its imaginative events and symposia, which have often been accompanied by a media frenzy. We were the first to invite vampires into the academy back in 2010. Our most recent endeavour, Company of Wolves: Werewolves, Shapeshifters and Feral Humans enjoyed extensive coverage globally and saw us congratulated in the THES for our ambitious 3 day programme which included actual wolves, ‘a first for a UK academy’.
