María M. Andrade, Universidad de los Andes. Francisco Morán, Southern Methodist University

Collections and collecting occupy an important place in the development of modern culture, both at the personal and communal level. "Who collects?", "what does s/he collect?", "why does s/he do it?", and "what meanings are assigned to the act of collecting?" are questions which have significant implications for the construction of individual and communal identities, and in which the fields of aesthetics, ethics, politics, and erotics inter-cross. The next number of the journal "La Habana elegante" will include a special dossier with reflections on the topic of collecting, and it invites authors from the fields of literature, history, cultural studies, and other areas to send essays for their review, before the deadline of June 30, 2009.

This is Nowhere: Local, Regional and Provincial Spaces in World Literature - 24 October 2009 (Deadline: June 1st 2009)

Sunday, April 12, 2009 - 5:33pm
UC Berkeley, Graduate Program in Comparative Literature

For all their complexity, recent discussions of cosmopolitanism, comparativism, and world literature have tended to privilege the global over the local, the macro over the micro, and the city over the country. These discussions have prompted us to ask some of the following questions: what constitutes a small town, region, province, village, settlement, or other small-scale community? How have these and other terms historically been used by the cultural centers from which most discourse is generated? What does it mean to speak or write from a local or regional community within the context of the world republic of letters? How is this related to or different from writing for a small-scale community?
