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.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

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.

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.
