Everchanging world order and its position in the continuum rely on ongoing events and the functioning of different states—country, government, nation, authority, community, land, etc.— embedded within the global makeup. The 2nd International Conference of the Department of English, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Sylhet 3114, Bangladesh, to be held on January 27-28, 2023, conceptualizes the narratives related to the terms—Refugee, Resistance, and Recognition— and their articulations in global literary spaces both as distinct and interrelated concepts in the premises of art, literature, language, (social) media, law, and politics in [Post]postcolonial perspectives.

Vishal’s Bhardwaj’s Shakespearean Trilogy

updated: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2022 - 10:02am
Richard Schumaker/Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

 

This roundtable will examine Vishal’s Bhardwaj’s Trilogy of films based on Shakespearean tragedies released between 2003 and 2014: Maqbool, Omkara, and Haider.

We want to keep the focus of this session as wide and as open as possible but will suggest three possible perspectives: examining the relationship between the Shakespearean plays and the Bhardwaj version; probing the singularity of the South Asian’s approach to the plays; contextualizing the South Asian version of the play with other South Asian sources—literary, political, and musical.

Women and the Great War: A Reexamination

updated: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2022 - 10:02am
Richard Schumaker/Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Typically, scholarly reflection on the Great War focuses on military activity and masculine performance; in contrast, this NeMLA 2023 seminar examines the importance of women as fictional characters, authors, and purveyors of legacies associated with the Great War of 1914-1918. By privileging the role of women, it is hoped that we can bring a fresh critical light to this pivotal moment in world history. Please note the very wide range of perspectives in this seminar: authors, characters, and context.

--Heidegger and the Question of Literary Influence

This panel on Heidegger and literary influence has both a very broad and quite specific focus.

Broadly, we will examine Heidegger’s writing to examine how philosophers in general and Heidegger in particular read, assimilate, and evaluate all kinds of literature: poetry and fiction both canonical and (post)-modern. We welcome all submissions on the broad and important relationship between philosophy and literature.

Does peacemaking have a place in our humanities curriculum today and if so, what are some innovative ways to integrate this theme into our literature classes? This panel invites papers that explore representations of peacemaking and conflict resolution in literary texts across genres, languages, and time periods. Papers that discuss methodologies for teaching literature with a focus on peacemaking are especially welcome.

The Everyday Beyond Description (Panel):

Subaltern Writing and Popular Memory in the Early Modern World

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 20, 2022

Volume 13 of the Journal of Early Modern Studies seeks to interrogate how common men and women used different modes of writing to keep, shape, and contest social memory in the early modern world. Studies on popular senses of the past, such as Andy Wood’s, have brought to light the complex interrelation between custom, collective memory, and social struggle. A usable past was key in conflicts over economic and political resources in the present. As the systematic regulation of access to reading and writing (Guillory), literacy was the basis for persistent forms of exclusion — particularly when gender and racial regimes of inequality intersected with class. But literacy was also a site of contestation.
