Nation and Its Discontents_Edited Volume

Monday, December 2, 2013 - 12:49am
Editorial Team, Nation and Its Discontents

Contributions are sought for an edited volume titled "Nation and Its Discontents" focusing on South Asia. The question concerning how to produce and disseminate knowledge on the 'nation', functioning as both an idea and a polity, without dispelling the 'cultural differences', calls for re-conceptualizing spaces, identities, diasporas etc. beyond western perception of nationhood. The 'nation-state', as often been argued, is an overtly restrictive projection of a model derived from western European experience onto the non-West where it may/does not apply.

[Update]: The Specter of Race: Stephen King's Representations of Black Masculinities (Deadline for abstracts: 31.12.2013)

Dr. Yael Maurer , Tel Aviv University

The Specter of Race: Stephen King's Representations of Black Masculinities
One of the most pertinent concerns in King's extensive oeuvre is the black body. King's works often deal with the body as a site of horror and abjection. His novella The Body is only one example where the coming of age narrative is necessarily mediated through the search for the body of a dead young boy. Other texts are more clearly invested in the body's potential for (self) destruction. In works like Carrie, Thinner and Pet Sematary, fear of the body's destructive potential is dramatized in horrifying detail.

Melanie R. Wattenbarger

This proposed special session will examine the typefication, marketing practices and consumption of a diasporic author's identity in the publishing process. By "publishing process" this examination is intended to focus on any time frame from the moment the author finishes writing her piece, through the editing process, to the point when the physical work is available on book shelves and the marketing of the work beyond its dissemination. Genres could include literature, poetry, or drama.
