Gender-based violence is a worldwide issue with an extended past that is predominantly an outcome of social norms and power disparities. In countries as different as Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe, studies find that violence is frequently viewed as physical chastisement—the husband’s right to ‘correct’ an erring wife (Heise 1999). Unfortunately, it is one of many societal concerns that literature has long addressed. According to the analysis of a report by CARE and International Rescue, gender-based violence has arisen amid the pandemic and quarantines (Haneef and Kalyanpur 2020).

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.

Every community craves a sense of identity in this world, and continuity with the cultural past. This is more so with the communities whose language, literature and culture are on the verge of extinction on account of multiple factors. Literature and culture can offer indigenous communities a sense of belonging and promote social cohesion, respect for diversity, human creativity as well as help people connect with each other. Hence, the call to preserve endangered folk cultural heritage of communities such as the Jetor, an indigenous nomadic community of Paschim Medinipur and Jhargram settled on the edges of Kangsabati and Subarnarekha. UNESCO has declared 2022-2032 as the decade of indigenous languages.

Exploring the Scandalous

updated: 
Friday, December 15, 2023 - 12:08pm
ESSE Conference 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2024

For this seminar as part of the ESSE conference 2024 in Lausanne, 26-30 August 2024, we invite abstracts on the topic/narrative structures/media conditions of the scandalous (in the 19th-21st centuries) through the lens of  in_visibilisation. Scandals – in the context of sex, money or power – tend to involve obfuscation, an audience that is in the dark, but willing to see, agents who have an interest either in disclosure or in concealment. These interests are shot through with power that can be gendered, often contains a class-imbalance, is sometimes racialized, and not infrequently centres on non-normative desires. One area in which these dynamics of scandalization become particularly obvious are the cultural practices of fame and celebrity.
