About the Conference

The social exclusion, economic marginalization and cultural subjugation of Indigenous people are pervasive in all regions across the globe due to colonialism and neocolonialism. Even today, Indigenous people continue to struggle to protect their rights to culture, community, heritage, and land. This international conference on Indigenous Studies will allow like-minded researchers, scholars and academicians to explore new avenues in Indigenous Studies. The conference will enable participants to discuss current issues within Indigenous Studies while emphasizing new ways to empower and work collaboratively with Indigenous communities around the world.

Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Apocalyptic literature and its study have typically centered around notions of Christian eschatology, i.e. the judgement presented in the Book of Revelations. However, the aftermath of the second world war helped reshape our notions of this genre. Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has begun to examine the relations between humans and the Earth during the Anthropocene. Images of global thermonuclear war, fears of communism, and a burgeoning climate change (with its subsequent and constituent crises) have eclipsed the teleological notions of divine creation and its eventual, inexorable movement towards eschatology.
