D. H. Lawrence once stated that it is hard to hear a new voice, as hard as
it is to listen to an unknown language. It is precisely around this analogy
that Lawrence’s claim becomes political. What is it that makes the spoken
word unintelligible? It is not simply a matter of speaking in a language
unknown to others. Rather, the problem lies in not being understood or
heard despite shared language. Deleuze’s notion of minor literature becomes
the aegis for such thinking. Posited as a practice of politics, minor
literature seeks the conditions of possibility of becoming a nomad in
relation to one’s own language. This nomadic relation to the major language

CFP: [Postcolonial] Postcolonial perspectives on collecting (ACLA. Deadline: Nov. 3 2008)

Postcolonial perspectives on Collecting

The private collection has been viewed by some as emblematic of bourgeois
European subjectivity. As Walter Benjamin has noted, the collection, a
world in miniature, wrests an object from its context and reorganizes it
according to a new system, a new rationality, devised by the collector
himself. While he believes the collection "emancipates" the object from its
original context, other authors, such as the anthropologist James Clifford,
have questioned the power relations by which one culture appears entitled
to collect the products of another.
