Postcolonial Queers: Representations, Remediations, Revolutions (NeMLA18 Panel)

updated: 
Monday, July 3, 2017 - 11:22am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA18)

The convergence of queer studies with postcolonial theory aims, at its core, to interrogate discourses that created hegemonic and binary categories that in turn became eventual grounds for the historical racialization of sexuality and the sexualization of race. By seeking to destabilize conventions of normalcy, tradition, and power, postcolonial queer studies puts forward non-normative and non-Western conceptions of race, sexuality, and gender that negotiate the spectrum where universalizing neoliberal, White, and predominantly gay love exists on one end; and where the exoticizing, orientalist homogenization of the “Other” exists on the other.

One-Day Symposium. The Open University, Camden, London. Friday 20th October 2017

In the last decade an emerging generation of writers from Malaysia and Singapore has achieved international recognition, pioneering new global English fiction and embarking on more confident imaginative journeys across South East Asia. This one-day symposium, a collaboration between the Open University and the University of Exeter, seeks to remap global English fiction (dominated by neighbouring South Asia) and draw fresh attention to the dynamic colonial literary cultures and postcolonial, globalising futures of Malaysian and Singaporean Anglophone writing.

The Spatial Language of Literature: Sovereign Space and the Borders of Capital

updated: 
Monday, June 19, 2017 - 9:56am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA, April 12-15, 2018)
deadline for submissions:

The 49th NeMLA Annual Convention
April 12-15, 2018 - Pittsburgh, PA

As capital flows freely across national borders, the sovereign state demarcates strict boundaries for people. Capitalism forges global connections with international solidarity organized around wealth. Yet as Foucault has argued, intranational spaces are increasingly heavily policed in the name of homeland security, giving rise to the security state and technologies of surveillance.
