The University of Western Australia

Limina is an online, refereed, academic journal of historical and cultural studies based in the Discipline of History at The University of Western Australia.

We are especially committed to publishing the work of postgraduate students and early career researchers, realising the importance of developing an early publication record, as well as the difficulties in doing so.

Recognising the fact that many articles get bogged down in the review process, at Limina we guarantee initial feedback on articles and the review process within 4 – 6 weeks, (ensuring your work is not buried somewhere for months on end).

CFP: Hemingway's Short Fiction, Louisville Conference 2011

updated: 
Monday, August 2, 2010 - 12:04am
Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900

While Hemingway's fiction remains a focus for many critics, not every piece of fiction Hemingway wrote engenders ample criticism. Susan Beegel, in Hemingway's Neglected Short Fiction: New Perspectives, outlines a few ways in which certain short works of Hemingway continue to be the subject of criticism ranging from sentence-length dismissals scattered throughout book length studies to full-length essays lacking meaningful contributions to the work's scholarly cache. Beegel's explanation of neglected short fiction including works featured in essays which have lacked critical stature is the starting point for this panel proposal.

Postfeminist Postmortems? Gender, Sexualities and Multiple Modernities (Annual Conference of the Department of English, Delhi Un

updated: 
Saturday, July 31, 2010 - 2:11pm
Baidik Bhattacharya, Department of English, University of Delhi

Feminisms and modernities have had a long and interlocked history. Now that we are, arguably, in a post-feminist, post-modern era, is it a fitting moment to stop and take stock of this critical encounter?
This provocation emerges out of a particular trajectory of debates, controversies and confrontations in gender studies over the past two decades. Judith Butler's Gender Trouble (1990) destabilised understandings of these interlocked categories about two decades after feminism emerged as a serious tool of critical inquiry. In 1990, also, Gayatri Spivak in The Postcolonial Critic re-located critical feminisms outside the Anglophone world.
