Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Abstracts for our annual meeting in beautiful Hilton Head, SC, are due November 1.  The College English Association invites you to join us in exploring the idea of the island.  The Sea Pine shell ring, over 15,000 years old, once sheltered Native Americans who occupied Hilton Head seasonally.  Gullah and Geechee culture emerged on the island as freed slaves sought sanctuary there at the end of the Civil War.  How, then, are islands in literature and film, as in life, places of desperate refuge and welcome escape?  What respites do they provide?

Deadline Extended! Word Hoard - Issue 6 - Hangover

Word Hoard
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 20, 2017

Word Hoard is currently soliciting articles, essays, interviews, poetry, fiction, creative pieces, and other publishable works on the theme of HANGOVER.

How do you prepare for a hangover? You can’t. Though folk and faux-scientific remedies abound, you can neither predict nor control what comes after celebration, outburst, exertion, or indulgence. A hangover reaches its tortuous apex when intoxicant levels return to zero, when necessary recovery and bare survival become the consequences of excess. How does one begin to cope, to clean up? How does one think through, and despite, one’s bodily timeline? What of the past still saturates the present?

The Wonderful Year 1816 – A bicentenary appraisal

“The value of centenaries and similar observances is that they call attention, not simply to great men, but to what we do with our great men. The anniversary punctuates, so to speak, the scholarly and critical absorption of its subject into society.”

Popular rhetoric about athletics consistently emphasizes corporeal mastery and bodily perfection.  Always exhibiting physical and mental toughness, athletes train ceaselessly to reach the pinnacle of sporting accomplishment: taking things to the next level.  In fact, there is a good argument to be made that athletic excellence requires superhuman skill, for it is only when athletes devote 110% of themselves to their sports that victory can be achieved.

Reinterpreting Literary Studies: Beyond Thomas Babington Macaulay’s “Minute on Indian Education (1835)”.

English literary studies, as a discipline, is fundamentally passé and is in a state of impasse; the sooner we realise this, the faster we can move on and make an epistemic shift in the Humanities in defining what constitutes “literari-ness”; most importantly – it has little relevance and serves no purpose in the Indian context because the Indian literary tradition – which is thousands of years old - cannot be determined by a British literary tradition, that at the most, is still quite recent. It is incredibly problematic that we refer to British cultural motifs in order to talk about our desires as an Indian society. We have to be willing to recreate a literary tradition that refers to the Indian literary-Sanskritic past.
