American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 11, 2014

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 9:25pm
Yale University

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. Part of the impetus comes from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Junot Diaz and Edwidge Danticat, Robert Hass and Jorie Graham, Dave Eggers and Jhumpa Lahiri without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

Anthology of Bangla Dalit Women writing in Translation

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 12:06pm

The emergence of dalit literature in Bangla as a cultural discourse has been a recent phenomenon, spanning for a period of about twenty five years. But examined historically, it dates back to the period of Caryapada,earlist literary expressions of Bangla literature. The origin, growth and development of this significant branch of Bangla literature has not only been of antiquity but demands a penetrating archival study as it involves multiple strands of ideas given by critics. In terms of output, Bangla dalit literature has produced a great body of writings by very promising writers, almost in every genre ranging from autobiography, literary criticism, short story, poems to plays novels etc.
