Hungarian Studies Yearbook, 2023

https://sciendo.com/journal/HSY

 

 

Hungarian Studies Yearbook is the latest intellectual venture of the Hungarian community from the Faculty of Letters at the Babeș-Bolyai University. The launch of this new platform comes after a long preparation and seems to be a natural and logical outcome both of the rich glocal scholarly traditions and the substantial impact this community had in Hungarian studies in the last decades.

Interplay of Community, Textuality and Orality: Comparative Perspectives on History, Culture and Society (26-28 April, 2023)

Friday, February 10, 2023

Literary theory has contributed towards the recovery of marginalised narratives and discourses in literature during the last three decades. The word, ‘minor’ has acquired a resonance of its own in the context of ‘national’ literature which tends to be part of a ‘great tradition’. Against such a background, the recovery of diverse indigenous traditions has become an important task of comparative studies of literature. Nations emerged as ‘imagined’ communities. However, nation-states were not ‘imagined’ in the crucible of prolonged struggles of anti-colonial resistance in Asia, Africa and Latin America, but were born of the political exigencies of imperial powers.

‘…for women within oppressed groups who have contained so many feelings–despair, rage, anguish–who do not speak, as poet Audre Lorde writes, “for fear our words will not be heard nor welcomed,” coming to voice is an act of resistance. Speaking becomes both a way to engage in active self-transformation and a rite of passage where one moves from being object to being subject.’[1]

Revisiting Realism: History, Memory, the World Second International Conference on Realism(s) in Post-WWII Literature

updated: 
Monday, January 9, 2023 - 11:03am
Nanjing University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 30, 2023

    Writers and critics have in recent years hailed for a “return” of realism to the literary arena with revised notions of what constitutes realist representation to take account of the experiences that are unique to our new era, e.g. “speculative realism”, “metonymic realism”, “ecocritical realism”, and “quantum realism”, to name just a few. Indeed, realism has neverbeen away from the academic limelight despite its accused naivety in aspiring to represent reality objectively, unabashed interpellation of readers into dominant ideologies or as a symptom of the waning of affect in late capitalism.

Postcolonial Infrastructure [EXTENDED]

Extended Deadline: 31 January 2023

 

Mobility systems, urban planning, markets, educational facilities, digital appliances: infrastructure organizes social life, assigns subject positions, and enables or prevents cultural exchange. Yet its powerful role often goes unnoticed as most infrastructure is designed to recede into the half-conscious background of daily life. In recent years, researchers in several fields have begun to uncover the sociopolitical hierarchies and resistant forces at work in the construction, maintenance, transformation, and dismantling of infrastructure. Postcolonial studies has much to contribute to this research—and vice versa.

Palimpsests of identity and memory: contemporary perspectives on South Asian diaspora literatures

deadline for submissions:

The South Asian diaspora remains one of the fastest expanding and culturally, politically, and financially influential diasporic groups in the world. Interestingly, for scholars and observers of diasporic literature, it is also a prolific producer of literary works that reflect processes of identity and community formation, diasporization, homemaking, cultural preservation and conservation of diasporic heritage.

Russia and/in America

Ashley Rattner
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2023

Since the dawn of the Cold War, U.S. popular culture has been saturated with narratives that pit a morally-righteous United States against a sinister, duplicitous Russia–a binary foundational to postwar American Studies. In the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine–and the attacks on democracy and human rights that it entails–the image of a menacing Russian presence is once again salient. Rather than redeploying a Cold War logic designed to disavow the sordid histories of the United States, this panel asks how we might approach the intertwined histories of Russia and the U.S. as a way of strengthening our critique of the oppression and exploitation perpetuated by both nations.

According to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, “To imagine is to represent without
aiming at things as they actually, presently and subjectively are.” Imagination is
associated with creativity and the ability to conceive and envision ideas, images,
visions, societies and sensations in ways that transcend reason, and reach beyond
reality. It is a force that ongoingly wrestles with the constitution of reality, and is
credited for having shaped the world as we know it through the cumulative work of
writers, artists, scientists and philosophers. Imagination, hence, produces, creates a
higher reality that becomes the new reality. It is a synthesizing force that oscillates

For two special issues of Diplomatica we invite proposals for essays on (1) the history and culture of diplomatic treaties; and (2) aspects of diplomacy’s relationship to literature. Essays may cover any historical period up to the present-day. The central questions that the special issues pose are:

(1) Treaties

– How and why have diplomatic texts evolved?

– How has their hermeneutics changed over time?

– Are treaties better understood as literary artifacts or as socio-political constructs?

– What can the evolution of treaties tell us about the evolution of diplomacy and the diplomatic profession?
