Submission deadline: December 20th, 2016

 

Reading practices, in many ways, form the basis of our discipline. However, we often take them for granted, or remain unreflective about their consequences. Whether it is our close reading methodology or more broadly the perspective we adopt, ways of reading require renewed attention and scrutiny.

It will focus on a range of issues related to the creation, reception, study, translation and marketing of these forms of expression. Whereas on the one hand New Zealand and Pacific arts are being created and circulated as deriving from culturally specific locations, they have also been received, translated, taught and marketed as part of the more broadly defined category of ‘world’ culture.

An International Conference on “SOCIETY, LITERATURE & MULTILINGUALISM ” to be held on 16th and 17th December 2016 in Pune, India.

Language has been the first sign of human evolution. Looking at our journey from pictorial symbols to the diverse multingual society we live in today, language forms an important anchor in this development. 

Language has marked our progress as a civilization. Today, the world is coming closerand distances are getting shorter. Globalization, cultural openness, increased interaction
and proliferation of the internet has made multilingualism the norm, to the extent that studies show that multilingual speakers outnumber monolingual speakers today.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

We hope to stimulate academic research and discussion around the theme of cognition, in relation to language (including language teaching), literature, translation and culture. In every aspect of our lives we make judgments and assessments and encounter judgments and assessments made by others, without necessarily examining closely the perspectives, methodologies or theoretical assumptions on which these judgments are based. What established procedures and canons of seeing and understanding govern the way we teach, the way we translate, or the direction of our research in any given area? Is there a need for these procedures or canons to be revised, modified or even abandoned altogether?

Autobiographical Narratives and the Uprisings of the Global South: the Private, the Collective, and the Global

updated: 
Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:41pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

This panel focuses on the autobiographical narratives of the Global South with a particular attention to those produced during popular revolts and regime-changing uprisings, like the fall of the dictatorships in Latin America, the demise of Apartheid in South Africa, and, more recently, the Arab Uprisings. The first axis that guides our panel is the relationship between “the subject” and “the collective” (understood as the tribal, the sectarian, or the national). These texts, which are generally written by activists, public intellectuals, journalists, or established literary figures, are mostly appreciated as counter-narratives or as the petits récits of national memory.
