In The Birthmark (1993), Susan Howe observes: "if you are a woman, archives hold perpetual ironies. Because the gaps and silences are where you find yourself." For Howe, historical omissions have been avenues for critical and creative agency. Writing into gaps--into invisible intersections between poetry and scholarship--Howe's work has brought us new forms of thinking and feeling about how we organize knowledge and what we recognize as "information." Howe's interrogation of the politics and aesthetics of knowing feels especially urgent in our current moment of Wikileaks and the Panama Papers, drone surveillance, the NSA, the spread of news via social media, and reality television.

From Charles Brockden Brown’s Edgar Huntly through Nathaniel Hawthorne’s House of the Seven Gables, a long tradition of antebellum American fiction concerns itself with the “prehistory” of American capitalism. While many critics have drawn attention to these formative years of a distinct American literature and their relation to the national imaginary, few if any have emphasized that these narratives underscore both the importance of land appropriation and the institution of economic contract to the transition between this “prehistory” and capitalist social relations.

CITY, SPACE AND LITERATURE (Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry, Vol 3 No 2)

Guest Editors: Anuparna Mukherjee (Australian National University) and Arunima Bhattacharya (University of Leeds)

 

Imperial expansion in the late nineteenth century brought the phenomenon of the modern urban metropolis to the peripheral colonies. Urban modernism was appropriated in the discourse of settler colonialism in distinct and diverse ways. In the context of the colonial, the ‘urban’ and ‘modern’ opened up heterogeneous places of cultural contact which facilitated complex formulations of race and class along the lines of socio-economic, political and aesthetic categories.

Biographical Forms in Contemporary Fiction

This ACLA panel invites proposals on the uses of biographical forms in contemporary fiction. The point of departure of our conversation is the idea of approaching biography as a "dwelling of human experience", to borrow the expression put forth by the German author and filmmaker Alexander Kluge. Kluge characterizes writing as "the only form of preserving human experience independently of time", in a manner that does not leave it "imprisoned in individual biographies". How does contemporary fiction that employs biographical forms approach literary writing as imaginative mediation of the historicity of experience?

An International Conference on “SOCIETY, LITERATURE & MULTILINGUALISM ” to be held on 16th and 17th December 2016 in Pune, India.

Language has been the first sign of human evolution. Looking at our journey from pictorial symbols to the diverse multingual society we live in today, language forms an important anchor in this development. 

Language has marked our progress as a civilization. Today, the world is coming closerand distances are getting shorter. Globalization, cultural openness, increased interaction
and proliferation of the internet has made multilingualism the norm, to the extent that studies show that multilingual speakers outnumber monolingual speakers today.
