nitial world responses to the Holocaust included the declaration “never again” (Gilbert, 2000; Reese, 2017; Herman, 2018; Power, 2013). This Special Issue on “Remembering Genocides and the Holocaust” invites contributions from different fields, such as the film, music, museums, and literature. Contributions may explore specific representations in their own right or the relationship between representations and lived experiences pertaining to genocide/ holocaust. They may focus on how remembrances of Holocausts and Genocides have been transformed over time, including, but not limited to the globalization, nationalization or privatization of such memories.
FORUM Postgraduate Journal Call for Papers Issue 32: The Aftermath (2021)
Following periods of social, political, and economic turbulence governments and communities around the world rally in efforts designed to preserve, challenge, or radically overhaul the status quo. Although there is now some reason for optimism, we find ourselves faced with the aftermath of numerous upheavals. Is this a unique opportunity to use the tattered threads of the social fabric to make something new? Where do we go from here?

Special Issue: South Asian Fiction – International Impact
Guest Editor: Dinesh Kumar
Plesae submit to this virtual (online) panel of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA):
The panel on "Transforming and Transcending Single Stories" invites proposals that address how we can challenge, transform, and transcend single stories so that we break current stereotypes, discriminatory practices, assumptions, and myths about what is different, alien, and unknown. Conscious attempts to resist single narratives prompt us to pay attention to efforts that exclude and undermine diverse perspectives, and that limit our understanding of who we are, how we view others, and the choices we make when we interact face-to-face or through social media on a local, national, and global level.
Postcolonial Interventions invites academic articles for the upcoming June 2021 issue of the Journal which will be an Open Issue.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has plunged the world into similar processes of distress, loss and anxiety, it has also exacerbated authoritarian inclinations in various nation-states, widened socio-economic disparities and hardened competing fundamentalisms. It is hoped that the prospective submissions will take into account these recent upheavals alongside the usual explorations of literary and cultural representations focusing on postcolonial concerns from various corners of the globe.

Food, more than a material substance is also a cultural expression handed down from generations to generations. In most societies, the older people pass on their knowledge of food and what constitutes “healthy or good” food to their new members. In this sense, the idea of food also marks a society’s relation with the larger environment- human and biotic. But, food also defines what is “within” from what is “without,” so that culinary skills, inherited through years of practice could be transferred to those who make up the members of a legitimate community.
This virtual (online) session welcomes papers on any aspect of the Humanities being used to increase quality of life, whether through public humanities, applied humanities, the arts, healthcare, social services, or other avenues; and, this year, papers that attempt to engage the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction” are particularly welcome.
During the Jim Crow era, racial crossing in the United States was officially regulated through legal, economic, religious, and socio-cultural means. When African Americans and other people of color strategically chose to pass, they undermined, often at great risk to themselves, white hegemony and the fantasy of a definitively either-or color line. Following Brown vs. Board of Education and the Civil Rights accomplishments of the 1960s, racial crossing‚ including disguise and transformation, cross-racial interaction, relationships, and friendships‚ continued to be prevalent as it also manifested in new, productive, and sometimes strange forms. For example, Loving v.

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in. As such, examining the life writing of those who participated or observed city protests can be intriguing and add a personal element to group politics. This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.
Children’s literature in English has long been a tool for literacy instruction and acculturation to English language, used both as a tool for learning and as a force for homogenization within histories of Anglophone colonialism and imperialism. As scholars and professors dedicated to exploring the ways in which texts for young people make meaning, we know that language functions as both a tool of empowerment and one of imprisonment. Amiri Baraka writes that “users”—or dominant cultures—“have words. And it is the users that establish the world’s realities.” Language, then, inevitably divides as it shapes such realities by sorting people into groups of “users” and non-users.
Linguistic Representations of Alterity
How is alterity represented linguistically in literary texts through dialect rendering, manifestations of aspects of one's social/political identity including gender, race, religion, sexuality, class, etc.?
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has impacted the globe for more than a year. This development sparked renewed interest in the historical, sociocultural, political, and economic aspects of epidemics and pandemics, currently evidenced by an outpouring of scholarship on the consequences of the current pandemic on the world’s population as well as social and economic structures. This symposium provides a forum specifically for the study of the sociocultural developments that lead to “Othering” in situations of a perceived crisis.
This symposium explores North American Indigenous intellectual and narrative traditions that were recovered, reclaimed, or (re-)invented in the wake of Red Power movements that emerged in the 1960s in the settler colonial societies of Canada and the USA. It asks: which new perspectives and visions have been developed over the last 50 years within Indigenous studies and related fields when looking at Indigenous land and land rights, Indigenous political and social sovereignty, extractivism and environmental destruction, oppressive sex/gender systems, and for describing the repercussions of settler colonialism in North America, especially in narrative representations?
