Thursday, September 30, 2021

Most cultural representations of the Latinx community produced in the United States have historically reduced this population to stereotypes or caricatures. Nevertheless, there is a new wave of cultural phenomena (literature, films, tv series, etc.) that has not only challenged these exaggerated and erroneous representations but has also sought to breathe complexity into real Latinx subjectivities and experiences. This panel welcomes essays that discuss new forms and interpretations of the histories and traditions of the Latinx communities present in literature and film. We are particularly interested in works that delve into the intersections of race and identity in Latinx production and self/representation.

Death, Sickness, and Plagues in 19th-century British Literature

The Year Without a Summer in Europe was among the reasons that inspired some nineteenth-century British writers to write novels and poems reflecting on the event and its effects on human relations. Works like Mary Shelley’s The Last Man and Lord Byron’s Darkness are among the examples that describe the feelings resulting from such an event, especially in Shelley’s work, in which many racial and political issues arise from such a crisis. How human beings care about each other in crises and what dilemmas result from such events are the focus of this session, as these issues are closely related to the most recent COVID-19 crisis.

Art and Activism: The Reshaping of Collective Consciousness and Social Justice

Thursday, September 30, 2021

In his 1962 essay, “The Creative Process,” James Baldwin writes, “A society must assume that it is stable, but the artist must know, and he must let us know, that there is nothing stable under heaven. . .The artist cannot and must not take anything for granted, but must drive to the heart of every answer and expose the question the answer hides.” The link between artist and activist illustrates the import of black public voices that challenge institutions of white supremacy, gender oppression, and systemic dehumanization. Historically, artists have critiqued, documented, and contextualized racial violence to ensure that the past is not forgotten and to reshape the nation’s consciousness.

deadline for submissions:

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.

Special Issue: Early Women’s Magazines in Malayalam

Samyukta: A Journal of Gender & Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Samyukta: A Journal of Gender & Culture proposes to bring out a special number on early women’s magazines in Malayalam. These magazines played a significant role in negotiating the gender dynamics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Keralam. The debates on the lives of women with reference to modernity, colonial or otherwise, have been fraught with paradoxes and contradictions that require detailed interrogation. While the grand narratives of the times were scripted by and for men, women’s lives were punctuated  mostly by  the banalities of everyday lives. The new found interest at the turn of the twenty-first century in micro-narratives that tell alternate stories contesting the dominant has prompted us to undertake the present study.
