2017 is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Austen has become one of the most discussed and beloved literary figures; indeed, her status as one of our most beloved literary figures has often influenced the ways in which her life and works are discussed within critical circles. Eve Sedgwick famously announced that Austen criticism is "notable not just for its timidity and banality but for its unresting exaction of the spectacle of a Girl Being Taught a Lesson." This special issue of Rhizomes invites critical articles and creative works that dismiss both this legacy of timidity and the tendency to exact pedagogical spectacles through scholarship.

William James first coined the term “stream of consciousness” in 1890 to describe the flow of consciousness, as metaphors of water seem the most appropriate to describe the flow of thoughts in the human mind. Water is often connected in literature to the flow and passage of time, as time itself is understood to be fluid, relative, non-linear, and variable in one’s experience of the passage of time. This panel seeks to create a dialogue concerning water and time, with a particular focus on the ways in which literary texts link the human mind, water, and temporality. Papers might engage such questions as:

In Locations of Culture, Homi K. Bhabha suggests that the “interstitial passage between fixed identifications” permits a hybridized identity which may allow “difference without an assumed or imposed hierarchy” (4). Though Bhabha’s argument is largely post-colonial, the examination of the interstitial – of the relationality between things – brings up considerations of difference and hybridization for any number of cultural issues or artefacts. What are the outcomes, in consideration of X/Y, if we shift focus off of X or Y and onto the slash in-between?
