The field of cultural memory has gained new impetus in the times of globalization and it becomes all the more imperative to explore the linkages between cultural memory, identity and literature. Memory has always been an intrinsic part of culture and identity and since ancient times memory has found a prime place in the lives of humankind and civilisations. As Saul Friedlander opines, cultural memory is linked to religion, ethnicity, history and gender for it can shape and mould identity.

Announcing the Call for Papers for On Belonging 2: English Conceptions of Migration and Transculturality, 1550 – 1700 (26 - 30 July 2021)
We are happy to announce that the Call for Papers for our summer 2021 conference is now open! Leading on from our first ‘On Belonging’ conference in 2018, ‘On Belonging 2’ will take place online, with morning and afternoon sessions spread out over 5 days between 26 – 30 July 2021.
The Journal of Literary Multilingualism explores texts written in non-native languages, in a mix of languages and alternating languages. It examines a wide range of literary practices from around the globe broadly defined by multilingual and multicultural situations. The phenomenon of literary multilingualism is as old as literature itself but has received more scholarly attention as migration and globalization have increased in recent years. As the first international journal devoted entirely to this emerging interdisciplinary field, it offers a forum for cutting-edge research across the humanities and social sciences.
The publication of There There by Cheyanne/Arapaho writer Tommy Orange in 2018 and Sacred Smokes by Lakota writer Theo Van Alst in 2019 marks a shift in Indigenous stories. Unlike so many Native texts before, Oranges places his story not in Indian Country but in the urban setting of Oakland. The figure of the Urban Indian has had negative connotations within Native communities as a mark of assimilation and dilution of Indigenous culture since the figure is removed from traditional homelands and communities. Orange and other Indigenous authors, however, are publishing stories that challenge this connotation and reimagine the Urban Indian.

GIRES, the Global Institute for Research Education & Scholarship and the Greenwood African American Studies Center (GAASC) explore the highly complex issue of racial violence in the United States.
Marginalized groups may be contrary to the dominant culture within a society through their very own existence. In cultures where those who reinforce divisions may seek to ostracize the Other by portraying them in a negative light, counter-hegemonic representations of the marginalized can be revolutionary. This panel will examine how non-dominant cultures in contemporary literature are depicted in the context of the dominant.
Central questions include:
What makes something (e.g. an action, a person's/group's identity) within a dominant culture subversive?
What are the benefits and repercussions of acting against the collective conscience?
