In addressing the conference theme of “Artists and Activists,” the Permanent Section on Native American Literature seeks proposals exploring a broad literary context for recent protests and legal action against the Dakota Access Pipeline.  Possible topics may explore literary activism in the tradition of Standing Rock Sioux scholar Vine Deloria.

Call for abstracts on literary/dramatic widowhood

“[O]ld Maid and musty Widows are like the plague shun’d of by all men…” So says Doll Pacify from Margaret Cavendish’s Bell in campo (1660). Her fellow servant, Nell Careless, replies: “a man cannot intimately love a Widow, because he will be a Cuckold, as being made one by her dead Husband, and so live in Adultry…” (Bell, V.25).

I am seeking original, previously unpublished essays for a collection tentatively titled The Science Fiction Western: Representation of Female Characters in the Late Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Media. An academic publisher has expressed interest.

Unfortunately, one of my contributors has pulled out of the project. As a result, I am seeking an additional essay. While I am looking for an essay, I am happy to accept more if they contain examinations of previously unaddressed areas of study.

REMINDER: Postcolonial Interventions, Vol. II, Issue 2 - OPEN ISSUE (JUNE 2017)

Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with the inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.

Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.
