From Naxalbari to Neoliberalism: Left Radicalisms in South Asia
Call for Papers: ‘Consuming Gender’
This special issue of Assuming Gender – an online, peer-reviewed academic journal from Cardiff University – seeks to explore the way gender is both presented and consumed through popular media and advertising. As Ann Herrmann points out in the article ‘Shopping for Identities’, commodities ‘are characterised by their dual nature: material composition and symbolic meaning’ (Herrmann 2002: 539). Consumer culture plays a significant role in constructing valid (and normative) identity categories with which consumers are encouraged to identify.

We are seeking essays of about 5000-7000 words for a special issue of Settler Colonial Studies focused on gender. We are interested in individual readings of settler texts through a gendered lens, in historical or cultural studies treatments ofsettlers and gender, or in more theoretical pieces that examine gender and settler colonialism. We are especially interested in pieces that read masculinity, liminal/trans gendered states, or genders in comparison, or that analyze gender in a new way.

Call for Papers: Revisiting Dialogue
Narrative Special Issue, May 2019
English literary studies, as a discipline, is fundamentally passé and is in a state of impasse; the sooner we realise this, the faster we can move on and make an epistemic shift in the Humanities in defining what constitutes “literari-ness”; most importantly – it has little relevance and serves no purpose in the Indian context because the Indian literary tradition – which is thousands of years old - cannot be determined by a British literary tradition, that at the most, is still quite recent. It is incredibly problematic that we refer to British cultural motifs in order to talk about our desires as an Indian society. We have to be willing to recreate a literary tradition that refers to the Indian literary-Sanskritic past.
