Goa, and the rest of the erstwhile Portuguese Estado da Índia, was the first part of the modern Portuguese empire in Asia to be decoupled from the Portuguese state (East Timor would follow in 1975 and Macao in 1999). The integration of Goa into the Indian Republic, following its annexation by the latter in 1961, has resulted in a certain opacity in terms of understanding Goa, and by extension Portuguese colonialism in Asia. This is the result of a variety of reasons. To begin with, the specific history of the Portuguese territory has been written in terms of British India.
Literature and Gender
The international journal antae is inviting full length contributions on the interspaces between literary studies and gender studies.
If gender is often scripted, then it might be best to examine how its narrative qualities can be produced, reproduced, rewritten, disrupted, or suspended. But what are these qualities, and how can one think—and write—otherwise?
In an age of technological growth, globalization, and neoliberalism, the ways we build trust are being dramatically transformed. Simultaneously, funding for education has become subject to market- and data-driven directives, neglecting the needs of vulnerable communities and ecologies. How do we learn to trust and trust in learning when our communities and connections are increasingly distant, ephemeral, and mediated? How do we avoid falling to game-theoretically governed social, economic, and informatic relations? What aspects of trust are under-considered in efforts for learning and change? Where are the flows of trust in above/below-ground networks (institutions, organizations, grassroots movements, communities of practice, etc.)?

What is the place and role of the voice in academic literary inquiry? How is orality treated in disciplinary and institutional contexts which identify most closely with text-based practices? How do we think of the relationships between orality and textuality without subscribing to a progressivist or evolutionary model that privileges text over voice? How is the voice and vocal performance treated and represented in literature? How do the voices of the translator, editor, critic, reader, and student of literature intersect to create literary disciplinary discourse?
Call for Chapters (Note: Our book is getting ready with Lexington Press. However we can still accomodate few more chapters.)
Tentative title Environment and Post colonialism: A Literary Response
A threshold marks the end of one space and the beginning of another. Therefore, we may conceptualize a threshold as either a border or an entrance. Borders need not be physical or geographic: they may be ideological, linguistic, economic, psychological, or identified by another theoretical approach. For example, we may consider physical borders between countries or the boundaries between texts, identities, or communities. Boundaries may be immobile and limiting, or they may be transgressed and manipulated; for that reason, a threshold is a paradoxical space where meanings connect or collide. We may examine thresholds within textual content, or outside of the text with regard to literary response and interpretation (e.g.
