In Mithu Sanyal’s novel Identitti, shortlisted for the German Book Prize 2021, a fictional professor of Postcolonial Studies who identifies as a PoC causes a scandal when it turns out she is actually white – a premise resembling a recent case in American academia. Who is ‘behind’ a theory matters – but how?

CALL FOR PAPERS
The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — will hold its first virtual conference, and calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.
In the 31 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.
In terms of a national frame and a geo-political collective, India has been a witness to multiple psychotraumatological contextualities of volatile historical and political upheavals and ruptures.

OMNES: The Journal of Multicultural Society, 12(1)
ISSN: 2093-5498 (Print) / 2671-969X (Online)
We are currently accepting manuscripts for OMNES: The Journal of Multicultural Society Vol.12 No.1 that will be published on January 31, 2022. To be considered for the upcoming issue, OMNES 12(1), please submit your manuscript by October 31, 2021.
About the Journal
Our previous books, Poetry and Pedagogy across the Lifespan (2018) and Poetry and Sustainability in Education (forthcoming 2021/22), explore poetry’s crucial role in educating learners of all age groups to meet the challenges faced as we navigate current and future crises. While both of these volumes provide theoretical approaches and applicable tools and methods for teaching poetry in numerous contexts, the essays are heavily weighted towards European/North American poets and/or Western educational institutions. This new volume seeks to invite perspectives from around the globe, centering on comparativist or non-Western paradigms and practices.
Dr Anuparna Mukherjee and Dr Arunima Bhattacharya are proposing a panel at ACLA (American Comparative Literature Association) Annual Meeting to be held at the National Taiwan Normal University from June 15 to 18, 2022. Please find the abstract and the details regarding the submission on the ACLA website.
Three main areas of focus for the panel are:

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Caribbean Literature for our 52nd annual conference. Submit your proposal at www.cea-web.org
We welcome individual and panel presentation proposals that address Caribbean literatures in general, including—but not limited to—the following possible themes:
Migration is one of the most prominent cultural, socio-political, and economic questions of our time. In both industrialised and less developed countries, it would be hard to find people who do not have a personal experience of migration and its effects, which ultimately ‘become the hallmark of the age of migration’ (Castles et al., 2013). According to the World Migration Report 2020, international migrants consist of only 3.6% (281 million) of the world population, and they make ‘significant sociocultural, civic-political and economic contributions in origin and destination countries and community’ (WMR, 2020). However, a great majority of people do not migrate across borders; instead, a large number of people migrate within countries.
In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.
The 53rd annual NeMLA Convention will be held March 10-13, 2022 in Baltimore, MD. More information here: http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention.html
This seminar invites 250-350 word abstracts for papers that will be circulated in February 2022, prior to the convention. During the seminar itself, session participants will briefly present their work before participating in a discussion with other panelists. Proposed papers should situate Soviet literature and/or other cultural products within a postcolonial context, or explain how postcolonial theory must be modified when applied in post-Soviet spaces. Please read the detailed CFP below:
