Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:

 

• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US

• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches.

Parlour Issue 4: Toni Morrison, Violence, and Domestic Space

“She rolled a bit of newspaper into a tight stick about six inches long, lit it and threw it onto the bed where the kerosene-soaked Plum lay in snug delight. Quickly, as the whoosh of flames engulfed him, she shut the door and made her slow and painful journey back to the top of the house” (Morrison, Sula).

Theology of Marilynne Robinson in a Postsecular Age

American Literature Association (Boston; May 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.
