As countries of the Global North continue to reshape their immigration policies to tighten the

legal/illegal movement of Global Southerners into and through their borders, globalization

announces itself as doubly edged, having positive economic benefits and undesirable

consequences on both sides of the global divide. Yet, with the twentieth-century surge in

migration, a noticeable trend in African migrant fiction like Mbue’s How Beautiful We Were and

Indian diasporic novels, such as Sahota’s The Year of the Runaways, including films like Amata’s

Black November, is that while much of global migration remains north-directed, with the Global

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2023

Drawing its inspiration from Edward Said’s discussion of the ways in which texts become ‘worldly’ through a series of filiations and affiliations, the ALA invites papers and panels that address such relations in all their forms. What are the filial structures that a text brings to its readers? What kind of affiliative readings might a critic bring to the text to disrupt the filial ties? What are the stakes in engaging in the traffic between filiative and affiliative readings? Beyond considerations of (a)ffiliated critical practice, how do literary and other cultural texts represent filiations and affiliations and in what ways do they constitute such relations?

“WHO’S IN, WHO’S OUT”: COMMUNITY AND DIVERSITY IN SHAKESPEARE

updated: 
Wednesday, October 4, 2023 - 11:05am
Shakespeare Seminar (German Shakespeare Society)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2023

Time and again, Shakespeare demonstrates the frailty and contingency of the many historical and “imagined” communities (Anderson) that feature in his works. Many of his plays revolve around the conflict between individuals and society, depicting the bonds between friends, lovers, family members or even whole nations being put to the test by desire, jealousy, and ambition. If Shakespeare’s communities are unstable to begin with, then discussions of diversity bring to light that very instability even further. His works have been both hailed for showcasing the universality of human nature and critiqued for implicitly reinforcing a Western, Eurocentric world view.

Thursday, October 31, 2024

We recently launched a blog series on medical and health humanities with an emphasis on the Global South. The blog series aims to bring together the multitude of discussions and expressive models of health and illness in order to explore interdisciplinary encounters and contestations related to agency, discourse, and power structures. We seek critical engagements within the framework of medical humanities for a more inclusive conception of health care and well-being that opens up a space for personal accounts of medicalized subjects on the margins of the medical establishment. The series emphasizes that embodiedness of health and illness belongs to the realm of narrativity both as personal experience and as part of medical epistemology.

This panel aims to explore the possibilities presented in immanent, paralinguistic expressions which evade or function parallel to and beyond the realm of structured grammar and logics of exchange.

For Caribbean man, the word is First and foremost sound. Noise is essential to speech . . .

Thinking Modern Epic

Benjamin Paul, Boston College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

What can be said about epic today? Although M.M. Bakhtin famously declared the impossibility of epic in a modern, polyphonic world in 1941, the category has remained a dynamic source of artistic and critical interest. The works considered in studies like Franco Moretti’s Modern Epic (1994), Sneharika Roy’s Postcolonial Epic (2018)or Václav Paris’s Evolutions of Modernist Epic (2021) re-evaluate epic as a multifarious category capable of shedding light on the global, postcolonial, and postmodern condition of contemporary literature—either as a site of resistance or as a form of cultural domination. Yet even in its new, polyphonic forms, the idea of epic is rarely severed completely from its classical roots.
