Wednesday, September 30, 2020

World literature in its contemporary formation is often traced back to the catastrophe of World War II and the large number of European academics whose displacement was produced in its wake. Though the Euro-centric post-War vision of world literature has been gradually overcome with the introduction of East Asian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern (and, more rarely, Latin American and African) texts to syllabi and graduate programs, much of the pedagogy of world literature is still organized by national traditions and historical epochs defined by empires and states. Like the return of the repressed in Freud's famous formulation of the Unheimlich (lit.

Special Issue for Fall 2021: Performing Translation

Call for Papers


The “Performing Translation” special issue of Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context brings together two keywords that have helped shape discourse on transnational cultural studies in the twenty-first century: performance and translation. Both concepts understand culture as fluid, shifting, and constantly on the move. Both are predicated on cultural encounter and exchange. Both performance and translation are iterative acts that challenge the notion of an original.

Cfp: Articulating belonging: translingualism, belonging and the creation of South African social collectivities

Friday, May 8, 2020

In the creation of nation-states during the 19th and 20th century, standardized and official languages were of key importance to develop feelings of belonging to social collectivities through the public sphere. However, contemporary global neoliberal conditions have put pressure on Romantic notions such as belonging, togetherness and culture, that used to be seen as the building blocks of national identity. Postcolonial and decolonial debates have, furthermore critiqued the presumed monolingual character of communities and nations (Yildiz 2012; Mignolo 2003) by pointing to their linguistic heterogeneity.

According to Darcy Ribeiro (1995), the Brazilian people have religiosity as a cornerstone of its culture. It not only played a large role in its “civilizatory” process, but also stimulated resistance movements, among which are the ones in Canudos, Bahia, and Lagoinha, Goiás. Religion has remained a strong identity feature through all of Brazilian history and, still today, it is the center of relevant social conflicts. Nevertheless, there is, in the Brazilian literary scene, very little space dedicated to the study of the representation of individuals and/or religious doctrines. The academy, thus, fosters the shunning of literary works bearing relationship with the mystic, the religious or, anything, in any way, connected with the sacred.

"The Global Trajectories of Asian Modernism" @ MSA Brooklyn

Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 12:45pm
Kevin Riordan / Modernist Studies in Asia
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 24, 2020



The Modernist Studies in Asia (MSIA) research network is proposing an affiliated panel at the MSA conference in Brooklyn, October 22–25.

Global and planetary modernisms tend to map different modernisms according to countries and continents, implicitly imposing a static, area studies–inflected order on these divergent and discrepant artists, texts, and practices. Against this tendency, for this panel we seek papers that trace surprising movements of modernism (broadly understood) within, across, and beyond Asia. Put another way, we are interested in accounts of how Asian modernism won't stay still.

Digital Methodology in the Linguistic Study of Literature: Theory

Linguistics and Literature Forum Session 1

MLA 2021 Annual Convention, Toronto, Jan 7-10

Digital tools have indisputably made many tasks in the linguistic study of literature much easier and faster than used to be. But the turn to digital methods has brought more than ease and efficiency; it has forever changed the field. What are the ways in which digital tools have shaped the linguistic study of literature? And what are the ways literary studies has itself inspired innovation, methods, and the development of new digital tools?
