South Asian texts and cultures offer a panoply of terms that are difficult to translate. Consider bhāva — a keyword in premodern philosophy, dramaturgy, and poetics — which may refer to an emotion, a meaning, an essential characteristic, a physical object, a living being, or existence itself. In contemporary South Asia, numerous colloquial terms such as timepass, jugaad, and aunty evoke nuanced existential states, techniques, and relationships that call for careful (and playful) theorization.

On May 2, 2022, a draft decision leaked from the US Supreme Court confirmed what many had feared: that the highest US court was set to overturn the 1973 decision Roe vs. Wade and roll back protections governing women’s rights. Almost immediately after, appointment books and clinics began to close in multiple US states. This situation was far from isolated; in the U.K., pandemic gains for women in access to early at-home abortion will roll back on August 29th, 2022. As these and other examples from around the world demonstrate, the present moment appears to be one of regression and regulation.

Friday, September 30, 2022

Learning of Castiglione’s death in 1529, Charles V declared “one of the finest gentlemen in the world has just died.”
The Spanish emperor’s praise is evidence of the depth and scope of the influence of Il Cortegiano during the
sixteenth century, appearing in Spanish translation by Juan Boscán in 1534 and in an Elizabethan translation by
Thomas Hoby in 1561. Yet Castiglione’s Courtier—read at times as a book of manners, and other times as
representative of Renaissance ideals—continued to influence writers, poets, and literary critics well into the
seventeenth century and for long after. Whether interested in sprezzatura, the art of conversation, the persistence of

The objective of this round-table session is to explore, examine, and discuss, in a variety of manners, particular literary protagonists and antagonists in world literary cultures. What seems to be their intrigue? What empowers them, or, perhaps, who do they empower? Consideration of and elaboration on points of view, themes, idiosyncrasies, heroisms, actions, styles, diction, and purpose(s) will be important to ascertain and reveal in a deliberate, inspirational, thought-provoking, as well as insightful dialogue with, hopefully, a sharing of esoteric discoveries. Contemplate how and in what ways certain protagonists and antagonists across world literatures continue to have tremendous value or a long-lasting effect in their specific roles.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS Journal of Comparative Literature and AestheticsSpecial Issue: New Perspectives in African Philosophy  Guest Editor: Adoulou N. Bitang (Tel Aviv University, Israel) For over three decades, from the middle of the 20th century onward, reflection about African philosophy revolved around the question of its existence or non-existence (following that of the capacity of Africans and Blacks to philosophize), or the other question of its nature (i.e., its characteristics, especially in relation to European philosophy). To a certain extent, African philosophy is still concerned with these questions today. For the most part, this treatment of African philosophy has a colonial background and bears a colonial flavor.

Utopias and (their opposite) dystopias arise from the urge to describe a possible world, a hard-to-come-true probability. Therefore, they either promise good news or foreshadow a warning for the future, depending on the benign or malign nature of the urge.
