Poetry's Publics and Counterpublics

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:23pm
ACLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

This panel invites discussion on how poets have negotiated the construction of publics and counterpublics in our loosely defined contemporary moment. While writers have long been interested in the genre’s ability to foment and critique the production of virtual and actual modes of togetherness, we aim to address poetry’s engagements with collectivity after the rise of mass media and the opening up of political and aesthetic representation to diverse identities and electorates that defined the postwar period in the United States. What kinds of social bodies can texts and politics produce in this realm? What does the study of poetry reveal about historical shifts in the ways collectivity gets experienced and conceptualized?

Rejoinder Call for Submissions -- Climate in Crisis

Institute for Research on Women, Rutgers University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 6, 2021

“Climate change,” as former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson so astutely notes, “requires a feminist solution.” Global heating is causing rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and the circulation of new pathogens. It impacts economically, socially, and politically marginalized people and communities most severely. Women and children, the majority of the world’s poor, are already disproportionately burdened by its effects. In the Global North, the climate breakdown compounds the environmental racism that many communities of color already experience.

Feminism has become the most controversial, most discussed and most contested subject in India’s current academic field. North East Indian feminism generally depended on Western feminism as well as Indian feminism frameworks. These two frameworks are diversely intricate from North-East India in term of race, class, caste, culture and religion, etc. Moreover, it is important to note that most Indian mainstream feminists are brought up in a specific cultural setting i.e. class, caste, religion etc. from various parts of India. ‘Indian feminist thought’ is a term that they coined through their own discourse.

Female Narratives of Protest: Literary and Cultural Representations from South Asia

updated: 
Friday, October 23, 2020 - 1:31pm
Nabanita Sengupta
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 1, 2021

Contemporary regimes of protest in South Asia are informed and injuncted by its ever shifting geopolitical modalities. With the rise of globalisation, neoliberalism and multiculturalism, South Asian geopolitics comprise a quest for redefinition of biopower and subjectivity formations. As hegemonies of Western  dominance are toppled, South Asian geopolitics are evolving as a complex assemblage of biopolitics, citizenship ethics and human rights concerns. In this evolving engagement with global politics, South Asia is fast emerging as a contending power itself with competent human and capital resources. An important consequence of this is the appearance of newer axes of fault lines in terms of polity, economy, religion, culture, art, and gender.
