SAMLA 94 Panel (Postcolonial)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 15, 2022

Language has always been a debatable issue in the postcolonial world. Starting from the debate between Achebe and Ngugi to today's multilingual scenario, language has been the heart of the conversation in postcolonial literary studies. Writers and theoreticians from the African continent and South-Asia have addressed the issue and role of language in constructing postcolonial identity in their works. Given the multilingual context of today's postcolonial world, discussion on language and identity is extremely important. This panel, thus, invites paper proposals on the questions of language and identity in contemporary postcolonial literature.

NeMLA 2023: Literature of Resistance

Monday, June 13, 2022 - 1:27pm

Thursday, September 29, 2022

For people of Latin America and the Caribbean, centuries of modernity/coloniality have resulted in continuous and compounding traumas that demand resilience. Yet, when we talk of resilience, are we ever naturalizing trauma and legitimizing the status quo, accepting that the way to be of oppressed peoples must always be in response to abusive conditions? Is it not possible that in focusing on resilience, we enable the continuation of unequal power structures by putting pressure on the oppressed to learn to adapt to what hurts us, rather than putting pressure on the world to destroy oppressive systems including racism, patriarchy, and capitalism? Instead of focusing on resilience, we should be imagining and enacting ways of being otherwise.
