The Theme

As we move towards a culmination of a much volatile second decade of the current century, we also view an unprecedented interest in research on issues revolving around Indigeneity. Again with information explosion, we also encounter the challenge of climate change, which is prompting the whole world to explore alternative technologies and knowledge in order to survive the catastrophe. A counter-discourse to the rights of indigeneity has also been conjured up as a concerted corporate attempt at destroying the idea of indigeneity and denial of their rights and habitat. In the previous century we have been made aware of these issues with the unmasking of mining capitalism for example. But as we get increasingly immersed in the postdigital and postglobal world of simulation and manipulation, vested interests, as opposed to free corporate liberalism, seem more and more to be building a new version of imperialism. Can we call it cupidocracy? Under such circumstances, we are inviting advanced researches on the issues of indigenous experience, indigeneity, language, culture, politics and habitat. Since the issues are of interdisciplinary nature, we invite papers from all relevant disciplines of liberal studies and the progressive human sciences.
Topics may include but are not restricted to:

  • habitat
  • subaltern
  • dalit
  • manicheanism
  • specularity
  • exile
  • hybridity
  • mythic consciousness
  • orality
  • psychoanalysis
  • anti-sublime
  • postindustrial
  • hierarchic economies

The issue will be foreworded by a series feature written by our Chief Editor on the functions of schizotypic illusions in the contemporary world.
