Land of Promise: Stories of the immigrant in multicultural Canada (February 3-4-5, 2010, proposals due December 15, 2009)

Centre for Canadian Studies, Department of Comparative Literature,Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India

In a multicultural and multilingual context, immigration has been an integral part of the national identity of Canada.
Modern Canada constitutes of a large percentage of Diasporic population who contribute extensively to the making of Modern Canada. In the wake of globalization, the evolution of Canada as a Multicultural State has been receiving much attention from mass media. This again has been a contested terrain since the settlement of a chosen race in a promised land has resulted into the subjugation of the Peoples who have been residing in the geo-political entity which came later to be known as Canada.

Final Reminder CFP (30/10): Forgotten Bodies PG Conference, 9th Jan 2010

updated: 
Monday, October 19, 2009 - 1:11pm
The University of Exeter

Forgotten Bodies will provide a forum in which postgraduate researchers can explore often overlooked discourses, representations and practices relating to embodiment, sexuality and gender. Previous research into this field has often urged overly simplistic hegemonic models of practices, desires and identities, which this conference hopes to reassess. Our main objective is to explore the challenges of not only researching, including but also re-positioning so-called 'forgotten bodies' in academic programmes.

"That Which Moves: The Kinetic Nature of Language and Literature"  

January 29th, 2010 ● 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Nationalism(s) and Cultural Memory in Texts of Childhood (15 Nov. 2009, 1 Feb. 2010)

updated: 
Monday, October 19, 2009 - 9:36am
Benjamin Lefebvre

This proposed collection of essays seeks to address the interplay between nationalism (or nationalisms) and cultural memory in a range of texts for or about young people, including books, periodicals, films, television series, games, tourism sites, websites, and archives. The overall collection will be concerned with the ways in which cultural memory is shaped, contested, forgotten, recovered, and (re)circulated, sometimes in opposition to dominant national narratives, featuring young characters and/or targeting young readers who are often assumed not to possess any prior cultural memory. Submissions that examine the circulation of such texts across national borders are particularly welcomed.
Possible topics include:
