The present literary reputation of Albert Camus is both fascinating and instructive. It is fascinating because, on the one hand, his work is all but absent from global university curricula; yet, he is one of the most widely read authors on the planet. Who has not read The Stranger or The Myth of Sisyphus?

Moreover, Camus and his work are instructive for many reasons.

Inter-imperiality
Guest Editor: Laura Doyle
Deadline for Submissions: 1 June 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

edits; believes in reaching the knowledge to most of the seekers. With this motto we are happy to launch two journals which would act as a platform from where ideas would emanate. Ideas are not effective till they reach too many heads, and keeping a knowledge restricted within the pay walls is nothing less than an epistemic violence. So our publications are open access and will certainly remain so.

NeMLA Panel 2017 - Blasphemous Translation

This is a CFP for a panel at NeMLA 2017 in Baltimore, MD.

In The Location of Culture (1991), Homi Bhabha introduces the term “cultural translation” as a way to read how “newness” enters the “world,” i.e., postcolonial and minority voices, even if the result might be “blasphemy as a transgressive act of cultural translation” (225-27). Blasphemy, read as a form of newness (which Bhabha decouples from Rushdie’s fatwa and links to survival and dreaming), is then an attempt to desacralize what is already established as sacred, or canonical. 

CfP: Out of This World: strangeness, estrangement and alienation in Global South literature

Narratives of discovery have long been produced in Europe about the Global South. Whether travel narratives describing the wonders of the New World, tales of survival in a savage Africa, or a nineteenth-century poet's Voyage en Orient, these texts have made of the Global South the site of estrangement and reexamination of the European self. However, the non-European subject is left unexplored, as in Camus' The Stranger, a novel taking place in French-colonized Algeria, and which notoriously elides the non-European Other, the unnamed Arab murder victim. In this seminar, we turn the tables to examine narratives of estrangement and alienation in Global South literature.

The cultural criminologist Michelle Brown calls for a greater consideration of the various kinds of spaces of enclosure and exclusion experienced by vast portions of the global population. While debates over the United States’ domestic policies of mass incarceration and its policies of imprisonment under the War on Terror may readily come to mind, Brown encourages us to consider how other sites such as refugee camps, migrant detention centers, and black sites blur the boundaries and push the limits of  how we think about incarceration.
