deadline for submissions:

As the world begins to come back together after years of social distancing, quarantine, and uncertainty, the English GraduateStudent Association’s 32nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University will be considering the relationship between environments and communities. Due to the continued presence of Covid, our conference this year will be conducted in a hybrid format. Our theme for this year's conference is“de/Constructing Environments and Embodying Communities.”The idea of environments and communities can be interpreted in a variety of interdisciplinary modes. Despite ongoing climate and public health crises, the renewal of shared spaces asks us to interrogate how our environments and communities are constructed.

CALL-FOR-PAPERS on Caste, Social Formation and Political Mobilization

updated: 
Thursday, January 6, 2022 - 5:02am
Centre for Social Studies, Netaji Subhas Open University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 16, 2022

Caste and caste-based practices are understood to be predominantly associated with the Indian subcontinent and broadly Hinduism. This structural, exclusionary process operates on entrenched, subconscious notions of heritable hierarchy, trans-historically modified by capitalism, environmental progressions, liberal democratization, globalization and other complex socioeconomic rocesses. The changing dynamics of these complex social patterns are equally susceptible to postmodern discourses of categories and identities, decolonial and postcolonial critical movements and political imaginaries that range from reification of status quo to challenging the immutability of the nation state.

Oxford Literary Review 45.1, July 2023. "What might Eco-deconstruction be?”

 

It is not I who deconstruct; rather, something I called ‘deconstruction’ happens to the experience of a world, a culture,

a philosophic tradition: ‘it’ deconstructs, ça ne va pas, there is something that budges, that is in the

process of being dislocated, disjointed, disadjoined, and of which I begin to be aware. Something is

‘deconstructing’ and it has to be answered for.” (Jacques Derrida, in A Taste for the Secret (2001).
