Queer Intersectionalities: Understanding South Asia

updated: 
Monday, January 8, 2024 - 10:56am
Edited by Nizara Hazarika & Namrata Pathak
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 31, 2024

Critical essays are invited for a book on queer representations in literature from South Asian countries. The local and allied global developments in queer literature in the regions and subregions of South Asia encompass diverse themes which bring to the fore the intricacies of political activism and demand for rights and policies cutting across myriad socio-cultural forums and settings. Emphasizing on how local, 'situated' and specialized knowledge is produced and how they impact operations of power in multi layered South Asian societies, the proposed book would throw light on shared and shifting conversations on/of queer communities across diverse disciplines, fields of knowledge and areas.

Enclosure is as much origin-story as it is globally contested condition. Critical accounts positioning the act of enclosure as integral to the root-systems of global capitalism, environmental catastrophe and precarity often refer to the historical effort by landowners to do away with the commons in favor of legally and politically recognized enclosures. Transforming sustainable agricultural practices into sites of energy-production primed for capital development, the early-modern enclosure movement gave rise to what Robert P. Marzec characterizes as “a model of the human that took as its direct enemy an environment thought to be threatening because it had yet to be properly secured, privatized, and cultivated” (18).

The Anthropocene refers to a proposed epoch that recognizes the significant and lasting impact of human activities on the Earth's geology and ecosystems. This concept has gained prominence in discussions about environmental change and serves as a framework for understanding the profound alterations humans have made to the planet. Postcolonial perspectives often highlight the role of colonial powers in exploiting natural resources from colonized territories. The Anthropocene can be seen as an extension of this historical exploitation, with the environmental consequences affecting not only the colonized regions but the entire planet.
