This panel establishes the presence of and explores queer themes and narratives in South Asian literature. While the focus is on the last forty years, we will also include more historic approaches as well. Participants may either focus on one country, work, or writer, or explore convergences and connections.

Department of English Graduate Conference
University of California, Riverside
Dates: October 19 - 20, 2017

Adaptation Studies is a growing field of research that addresses a significant subset of the intersection of film and literature, in which, as Maureen Quinn puts it, literature and film are studied as "two interdependent partial texts that become a new whole." This session invites papers that explore the many facets of adaptation studies, including literature adapted to film, film to video games, and film to textual works. Papers that engage some aspect of the conference theme of "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing" are especially welcome.

A one-day colloquium organised by the Southern Studies in the UK Network

Earlier this year a river revered by the local Mauri people in New Zealand has been granted legal rights as a living entity. This first incident was then succeeded by a court’s decision in India to grant the rivers Ganges and Yamuna the status of living beings. Not all parts of the earth benefit from such legal protection as evidenced by the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul in 2013 and by the Dakota Pipeline protests more recently.
The editor seeks scholarly essays that address some aspect of HBO’s television series The Leftovers (2014-2017) and/or its source text, Tom Perrotta’s novel of the same title (2011). Perrotta co-produced the series with show runner David Lindelof (Lost). Both novel and series are set three years after the “Sudden Departure” of 2% of the world’s population. In ways distinct to each form, The Leftovers serves as a study of the psychological, social, and cultural impact of a large-scale traumatic event. Perrotta’s spare, satirical, character-driven fiction lies in the lineage of modern novels set in the American suburbs.
