deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

Keynote Speakers:
Prof. Sandra Ponzanesi (Utrecht University)

“Can the Migrant Speak?” engages with the figure and agency of the migrant. It is not often that we hear about - or listen to - the migratory experience from those undergoing it themselves. By asking this question during a time of tumultuous political change, we directly address the roles of our disciplines, and academia as a whole, in relation to this issue that continues to shape lives across the globe in powerful ways.

Thinking the Global with Literature (journal special issue)

updated: 
Monday, November 20, 2017 - 11:18am
New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.

The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.
