Taking as its starting point R.W.Connel’s understanding of multiple variants of "hegemonic masculinities," this panel seeks to examine how masculinities are constructed across a vast spectrum of class, caste, and ethnic differences in South Asia. Borrowing from Stuart Hall’s theorization of "identity in process," this panel seeks to examine the idea of masculinity "in process" in post-colonial/post-imperial spaces like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. This panel seeks to examine different forms of fragile masculinities and aim to unpack their inextricable relationship with hegemonic practices. By doing so, this panel will examine how the idea of masculinity is heavily influenced by both local and contemporary neoliberal practices.

When iconic feminist scholar Susan Gubar is faced with ovarian cancer, she turns to research and her pen to produce her 2012 Memoir of a Debulked Woman: Enduring Ovarian Cancer -- depicting her “life-in-death” (188) illness with brutal honesty. Gubar emphasizes a “[telling of] the truth about the experiences of the female body” as her illness works to destroy her understanding of self. While her text serves as a means to capture her illness narrative even as it defies cancer-related tropes, her memoir becomes a space where her writing process and writing product help her to work with and around her illness.

In “The Storyteller,” Walter Benjamin draws a figure whose narratives imparts wisdom and lived experience, one whose stories “[have] counsel for his readers.” He laments “the art of storytelling is reaching its end because the epic side of truth, wisdom, is dying out.” For Benjamin, the solitary and isolated author has no lived experience to offer in her stories, for rather than epistemological stories she produces only informative narratives that offer “evidence of the profound perplexity of living.”

Navigating urban spaces as a queer subject in a global world can prove to be challenging. Indeed, the experience of being queer in the cité, favela or any major urban space around the globe may conjure up a different reality based on the subject’s country and society. This panel will consider the way writers, filmmakers, and intellectuals view queers and their relationship with the urban spaces they inhabit, especially cities implicated in postcoloniality, globalization, and nationalism and that struggle with tradition and modernity, religious faith and secularism, political upheavals and economic crises.

A Study in Sidekicks: The detective’s assistant in crime fiction

‘I am lost without my Boswell’, Sherlock Holmes says of his trusty sidekick Dr John Watson in ‘A Scandal in Bohemia’ (1891). Biographer, narrator, observer, assistant, companion, conscience, foil, fool, audience surrogate – the role of the detective’s sidekick is multifaceted, complex and continually evolving.

[ACLA 2018] Reimagining the Local in Contemporary Global Fiction

Since the critical adoption of “world literature,” literary scholar have too willingly taken “the global” to be a natural scale of analysis, clearly discernible from its necessary opposite: the local. This seminar looks to identify and articulate distinct relationships between various forms of “the global” and “the local” that frustrate the easy binarism we find ourselves using as we delineate the field. We thus seek to complicate assumptions about scales of analysis, without resorting to hybrid or co-constitutive terms such as “glocal” (Appadurai) or “local internationalism” (Massey).
