Book Project: Title: Rewriting Her Story: Critical Essays on the Female Subject in the Colonial and Postcolonial World
(Literary Criticism)
Call for Papers
The fragmented or hybrid nature of the postcolonial female subject demands its construction through subversion of both the colonial and the patriarchal discourse. These deconstructive moves within the texts are used to dismantle master narratives inspired by Eurocentric discourse and, at the same time, to call in question the logo centric categories upon which colonial discourses are based.

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

CfP: Placing the Author: Literary Tourism in the Long Nineteenth Century

Monday, December 22, 2014 - 5:54am
Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, 84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester

The nineteenth century witnessed a surge of enthusiasm for visiting places associated with authors and their works, and a related interest in the preservation and consecration of authors' houses. In 1847 one of the world's most famous sites of literary tourism, the birthplace of William Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon, was purchased and established by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, while the first blue plaque was introduced in 1867 to mark the birthplace of Lord Byron. What did visitors to literary graves, houses and landscapes seek to experience and how was this mediated by the spaces themselves?
