On Cities and Utopias, Individualities and Globality--Deadline February 1, 2010

Issue of Journal of Contemporary Literature

Troy, Ur, Sumer, Babylon, Samarqand, Timbuktu, Jerusalem, Cairo, Bagdad, Damas, Constantinople/Istanbul, Prag, New York, London, Dublin, Berlin, Paris, Tangiers, Delhi/Indraprastha are just a few names in the long list of real/mythical urbanities.

 

The birthplaces of cultures, they symbolize better than everything else the expressions and contradictions of fictional identities. Ulysses wants to go back to Ithaca, Stephen Dedalus wants to leave Dublin, Mahfouz's "beggar" roams the streets of Cairo in search of wisdom…

ON NOT LOOKING: Essays on Images and Viewers

updated: 
Thursday, October 8, 2009 - 9:29am
Frances Guerin, Ruhr University, Bochum

Submissions are invited for an edited book with the working title On Not Looking:
Essays on Images and Viewers. Contemporary experience presents us with a
contradiction:  while we are at a historical moment when images have never been so
readily available and circulated, we increasingly "don't look" at images. The
collection of essays will explore the myriad ways that not looking at images — as
opposed to not seeing — is manifest in our burgeoning image culture today.
Contributions are sought that address practices and representations of "not looking,"
"turning away," and other manifestations of physical and mental distraction from
material images.

The Booker Prize and India

Dr.Nilanshu Kumar Agarwal

A full-length novel written by a citizen of the Commonwealth, the Republic of Ireland or Zimbabwe is eligible for the Booker Prize. The reputation of the prize is sure to transform the fortunes of the author who receives it. This prestigious prize has been won by four Indians—Salman Rushdie (Midnight's Children, 1981), Arundhati Roy (The God of Small Things, 1997), Kiran Desai (The Inheritance of Loss, 2006) and Aravind Adiga (The White Tiger, 2008). With the award of this prize to Indians, Indian Writing in English (IWE) has become a force to be reckoned with. The present anthology of critical essays proposes to analyse  the above  Booker-winning novels and the general subject of the Booker and India.

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87

San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.
