The Book Out of Order: Structure, Inversion, Dissent

“The book always aims at installing an order, whether it is the order in which it is deciphered, the order in which it is to be understood, or the order intended by the authority who commanded or permitted the work.” (Roger Chartier, The Order of the Book)

If, according to Roger Chartier, “the book always aims at installing an order,” what does it mean for the book to be out of order? Is it broken? Is it committing some kind of transgression? Is it still a book? What is a book supposed to do, and what does it mean when it falls short of its perceived functions – or overshoots them?

Decay and Regeneration (Virtual Graduate Student Symposium)

updated: 
Friday, December 18, 2020 - 12:04pm
George Washington University English Graduate Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 29, 2021

The theme of decay and regeneration captures our current global moment of political uncertainty, environmental catastrophe, public health crises, and mass protest. In the past few years, we have witnessed a once-in-a-century pandemic; global protests in response to police brutality; a record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season; the largest wildfires in recorded Amazonian, American, and Australian history; the continued resurgence of fascist political ideologies; and the potential collapse of liberal democracy as we know it.

A Virtual Gathering of the Indigenous Literary Studies Association

Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences

June 1-3, 2021 

Hosted online at the University of Alberta, Treaty 6/Métis Nation Region 4

In a time when the majority of our interactions are happening in virtual spaces, ILSA seeks via its 2021 gathering to remember, affirm, and critically consider our embeddedness in particular landscapes, in diverse Indigenous territories, on land that--as Taqralik Partridge reminds us--“does not belong to us.” Instead, she asserts, “nunattinut pigijauvugut”:“We belong to the land.”

Call for Papers: Video Games at the Intersection of Postcolonialism, Postcommunism, and Globalisation, 19/09/2021

University of Bucharest
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021

In the past decades, video games have established themselves as a global entertainment medium enjoying ever-increasing sales and profits. What was once a contested form of entertainment, now benefits from a level of social acceptability comparable to that of more traditional media such as the cinema. The popularity and cultural capital of video games calls for an inquiry into their contribution to the construction of cultural identity. While this avenue of research has begun to gain momentum, as proven by the increasing number of academic publications on gender identity or sexual orientation, less attention has been given to colonialism and colonial subjects in the context of today’s neoliberal postcolonial and postcommunist world.

 Children's Literature has been taught in undergraduate classrooms since at least the early 1970s and has grown to become a staple of English literature programs. Children's literature classes are typically among the most popular English lit course offerings and often draw in students from other disciplines. It is easy to understand why; children's literature classes promise students the opportunity to revisit familiar works with fresh eyes. With the rise of children's book purchases in the midst of the pandemic, the popularity of the discipline is unlikely to abate.

A Study of Aesthetics in Art and Representation Memorialising an Epitaph for the Literary Legacy of Professor Ananta Charan Sukla

updated:

Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics (JCLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Contemporary studies in art in juxtaposition with the politics of representation lack a cogent evaluation of the limitations of the persisting need for epistemic validation for ontological existence. The relationship between art and its contribution toward the endorsement of ontological beliefs is a complex entity that constructs and reconstructs material conceptions of literary history. Such gaps in literary criticism necessitate a theoretical analysis of the aesthetic experience in art and reality, and the scope of aesthetics in its (re)presentation of the reality of art.
