The cultural criminologist Michelle Brown calls for a greater consideration of the various kinds of spaces of enclosure and exclusion experienced by vast portions of the global population. While debates over the United States’ domestic policies of mass incarceration and its policies of imprisonment under the War on Terror may readily come to mind, Brown encourages us to consider how other sites such as refugee camps, migrant detention centers, and black sites blur the boundaries and push the limits of  how we think about incarceration.

TITLE: South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities

Paper abstracts are invited for a seminar/roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention, March 23-26, 2017 (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.)

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.

Why religion got it all wrong? Conceptualizing new methods of reading.

 

Literary scholars need to throw open the doors of what texts constitute the study of literari-ness and the methods of doing so; such an act will allow the discipline to examine and interrogate socio-discursive practices which affect the lives of women all over the world.  Religious texts codify culture and gender norms and it is imperative that literary scholars engage with these texts that perpetuate and maintain oppressive hegemonic institutions.
