Historicizing Forms and Spaces of Refuge

The MLA Forum TC History and Literature invites proposals for a guaranteed panel at the 2018 MLA Convention in New York City (January 4-7, 2018).

We are seeking historically-situated papers on how literary forms construct, influence, and are influenced by spaces of refuge, asylum, sanctuary, and migration.

While recent public attention has turned toward humanitarian crises that have resulted in forced displacement, as well as debates about the legalities and moral consequences of documenting and registering immigrants, we welcome essays from a range of times and places, not limited to the United States or Britain in the present moment.

 Submissions sought for new editied collection Surveiallance, Race, Culture

 

Drawing on huge interest in the upcoming collection Spaces of Surveillance: States and Selves which is currently in press (Palgrave Macmillan) this new collection seeks to merge cultural explorations of surveillance with the issue of race. We wish to examine how culture produces or reproduces power relations via the surveillant technologies which have captured the cultural imagination. Through a critical reading of contemporary and historic narratives of race and surveillance, we seek to illustrate the ongoing cultural fascination with technologies of control and surveillance.

Subaltern Women’s Narratives: Subversion, Resilience, and Shifting Responses

updated: 
Monday, February 6, 2017 - 12:04pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 23, 2017

This conference aims to look at the material histories and lives of subaltern women. In her 1988 essay ‘Can the Subaltern Speak?’, Gayatri Spivak extends the definition of the ‘subaltern’, going beyond “strict class analysis”, to incorporate a range of different subject positions, not predefined by dominant political discourses. We draw on her definition in our usage of the word ‘subaltern’, to focus on the experience of marginalised women in the present day. Most of the current academic discourse on subaltern women concentrates heavily on narratives of subjugation. However, the varied nature of lived experiences of these women has presented challenges in the knowledge and understanding of their experiences through an overarching critical narrative.
