Call for Papers: International Conference on Plastic Turn
An international conference titled PLASTIC TURN will be held on 3rd and 4th of August, 2023, at the University of North Bengal, India. The keynote speakers are: Haun Saussy (University of Chicago), Karen Thornber (Harvard University), and Olga Solovieva (University of Chicago). Although the title of the conference is PLASTIC TURN, following on Ranjan Ghosh’s book The Plastic Turn and how he introduces this term into our critical discourse, this international conference broadens the ambit of intervention by emphasizing on plastic studies from a variety of fields and perspectives. Engagements and critiques of Ghosh’s book are welcome but also papers ranging across a variety of subjects incidental to plastic will be entertained.
