In the aftermath of the man-made catastrophes, such as genocides, the artistic production does not only seek to grasp the reality behind the atrocities, but also to convey that reality as it is experienced. Language functions as medium for deconstructing this brutal reality that exceeds meaning. Thus, language could be situated among the most crucial components of the communication process since it functions both as catalyzer and obstacle for the embodiment of the historical reality. This panel explores the diverse discourses in which genocides are understood and represented in contemporary artistic production. What are the linguistic, moral, political, and sociological functions of language during and/or in the aftermath of the genocides?

Date: Saturday 16th January 2021

 

Though ubiquitous across stage, page and screen, images of siblings remain an under-researched and under-discussed phenomenon. The relationships, rivalries, conflicts and collaborations between brothers and sisters are frequently overlooked, and yet offer the possibility for fascinating discussion and insight into a wide range of cultural texts.

Rethinking Innovation: Practices of Care and Maintenance in DH Scholarship and Pedagogy

NEMLA 2021 (Philadelphia, PA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While the theme for this year’s NEMLA conference proposes the dyad of “tradition and innovation,” some recent work in the Digital Humanities has skirted these two poles. An influential forum on “Ethics, Theories, and Practices of Care” in the 2019 edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities explores the status of care relations, maintenance and repair, the embrace of lowered-innovation levels, and the turn away from compulsive productivity in the sphere of Digital Humanities scholarship and pedagogy. These concerns follow a similar wave of interest in care and care relations in literary studies.

Deadline Approaching: "Middlebrow Gothic: Dark Domesticity in British Popular Fiction, 1920-1960"

Commenting on Ivy Compton-Burnett’s subtly brutal A House and Its Head (1935), Francine Prose argues that the author’s portrayal of domestic life works to illuminate ‘the fear of being humiliated, bullied, silenced, and ignored, the fear of eternal incarceration in the prison of the family’. Bearing this sense of domestic peril and claustrophobia in mind, it can be argued that portrayals of home and family provide one of the foremost intersections between the twentieth century middlebrow novel and the older literary tradition of the Gothic.

Innovative Practices in Indian Education System

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 31, 2020

Education is the backbone of any Nation. To bring positive changes in a country, we need to change its education system positively. India had remained under foreign rule for a very long time. The foreigner rulers changed the spirit of the education system as per their convenience. It is a proven fact that India was a learned nation well before the arrival of Europeans. It is evident from the rich Indian ancient literature, which is available in every sphere of life. The Britishers ruined the traditional Indian education system and replaced it with the Macaulay system so that they could produce young clerks to serve the British Raj.
