Territory, Politics and Performance in Tudor England

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union constitutes the most momentous separation of British-European political culture since the Protestant Reformation.  As scholarly and public interest in ideas of British political identity continues to sharpen, this conference explores themes of division and devolution in drama written at the dawn of the British Empire.  Looking to Britain’s uncertain future by learning about its past can tell us much about how literature responds to drastic political change, not least in terms of the territories (real and imagined) with which it is invested. Recent events across the Atlantic also point to the complex dis/unities of political leadership, religion, and physical spaces.

Cultures of Violence in South Asia EditorialSpecial Issue of Kairos: A Journal of Critical Symposium (Vol.2, Issue 1, 2017) While the Indian Subcontinent lays claim to a rich legacy of anti-colonialism borne out of Gandhian ideals of non-violence, it is fraught with periodic flare-ups of violence between the state, insurgency groups, religious organizations, among a wide spectrum of other actors. It could even be argued that the violence has been congenital to the nation-state formation in the Indian Subcontinent, as exemplified in the rich literary tradition of the Partition narratives by SaadatManto, Ahmed Ali, Khushwant Singh, and Bapsi Sidhwa.
