Victor LaValle dedicated his 2016 horror novella The Ballad of Black Tom, a work that reimagines a racially-charged Lovecraftian universe by centering it around the Black experience, “To H.P. Lovecraft, with all my conflicted feelings”. LaValle’s ambiguous feelings as both a reader and author are shared by many students of the Gothic as they adjust recognizable and occasionally exclusive generic boundaries to better encompass varied, eclectic, and sometimes invisible or problematically visible identities.

“Germany is one of the most committed operators of international artist residencies,” asserts the self-description of the “Working Group of German International Residency Programs.” Among German residencies are Villa Massimo in Rome, Villa Aurora in Los Angeles, Villa Kamogawa in Kyoto, and many others. Together, these institutions form a global network coordinated by actors such as the Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut. This network plays a key role both in Germany’s foreign cultural policy and in supporting literature and the arts.

The planetary event characterised as Anthropocene in our times shares a particular relationship with the Modernist milieu which sought to represent the conflicts that extend to the non-human and the more-than-human world. Scattered through Eliot’s poetic oeuvre is the speculation of how to think seriously about the planet. Every street lamp that Eliot’s lyric persona passes from beats like a “fatalistic drum” with Bergsonian élan vital (the creative force) which informs both the human and the non-human world. This roundtable invites contributions which will explore the non-human aspects in Eliot’s poems.

Resilience is a word used to describe the ability to sustain adversity. Graphic narratives situate the debates about resilience in the realm of popular culture. Many graphic narratives depict the themes of resilience which have emerged as a result of socio-political upheaval, existential urges and institutional threats. Works such as PersepolisBhimayanaFun Home and Nat Turner graphically depict the story of the immigrant experience, caste, gender and race issues based on the varied forms of worded and pictorial texts.
