But what sort of sense is constitutive of the everydayness? Surely this sense includes not sense so much as sensuousness, . . . a knowledge that lies as much in the objects and spaces of observation as in the body and mind of the observer.
– Michael Taussig, "Tactility and Distraction"

[UPDATE] Journal Issue on Contemporary Indian and Chinese Fiction (30 Sep. 2009)

Saturday, May 9, 2009 - 2:18am
Journal of Contemporary Literature

This is an amendment to the CFP posted about three months ago.

The December 2009 issue of the Journal of Contemporary Literature will be devoted not only to articles on contemporary Indian novelists, including novelists of the Indian diaspora, but also to articles on contemporary Chinese novelists, including novelists of the Chinese diaspora. The issue will be expanded to accommodate this expanded focus, which will make the issue contents more marketable as a collection of essays.

Articles should be between 3,000 and 8,000 words, including notes. Documentation should follow MLA guidelines. Analyses of individual works, thematic surveys of multiple works, as well as comparative treatments are welcome.
