Call for Papers

Special Issue of "South Asian Popular Culture"

Bollywood Audiences (Fall/October 2005)

Special Issue Co-editors: Jigna Desai (University of
Minnesota), Rajinder Dudrah (University of
Manchester), and Amit Rai (Florida State University). 

“The sense of belonging that Bollywood films foster -
the sheer sense of security and shared joy, … the
commonality of experience despite the geographical
separation of so many thousands of miles - is second
to none. It works more because Bollywood is one of the
things that bind us together as Indians, never mind
where we live.”

CFP: Asian Gothic Literature (31 Dec. 2003, Collection)
I am soliciting for ABSTRACTS at this stage for a monograph of scholarly
essays on Asian Gothic Literature. Despite its Anglo-centric literary
heritage, I believe that the Gothic, in its ambivalence and
susceptibility to polyvalent interpretations and theorising, is a
helpful way of reading and understanding the vast output of powerful
Asian texts that carry strong strains of the forbidden, the
extraordinary, the fantastic, the supernatural and the uncanny (amongst
other =91Gothic=92 concerns). Furthermore, a vast majority of =
Asian writers have been exposed to turn-of-the-century Western

Contemporary Theatre Review: Theatre and Globalization We are inviting

Globalization is transforming our world: compressing time and space,
challenging the power of the nation-state, juxtaposing and erasing
cultural differences, replacing geographical boundaries with the
weightless flows of global capital, giving new life to ancient forms of
cultural rivalry, bringing all areas of personal, social, and cultural
life within its awesome reach.

We are seeking three strong essays to round out an edited book
collection as described below. We would need a one-page abstract by
10/5, and full paper by end of December. We are planning an edited
volume of essays exploring the intersection between postcolonial and
globalization studies. We believe that such an exploration is important
to undertake at this time to counter the hegemonizing/homogenizing
tendencies we sense emerging in dominant strands of contemporary
cultural theory. It is unclear whether contemporary globalization theory
has been made possible by the postcolonial challenge to older
Eurocentric forms of globalization premised on the centrality of the
